Children's Climate Change Project
6-10 yrs (Junior)
8w3ZhLmB_400x400.jpg

With funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, we’ve set up a children’s climate change project #Letsgrowtogether.  Children aged 6-10 yrs will be able to attend 17 free gardening workshops, led by Amie Lock, designed to promote the values of sustainable living through growing vegetables and the vital role that pollinators play in producing our food.  As well as enjoyable gardening activities at our Centre’s climate change garden, the children will be able to take a fun activity back home to complete.  Every season, at two of our events a recipe card will be included in each pack to promote healthy eating which has been provided by Cardiff resident, Michael Bell - a Brand Marketing manager and food writer.  (see website) The gardening workshops will run from 24th April to 29th January 2022, on the last Saturday of every month during term time and weekly on Wednesday mornings 10.30-12.30 during school holidays. If the weather is poor a takeaway option is available.

Notice for participants of the Saturday and Holiday Gardening Plant and Grow Workshops 

 

As many of you know we are running a programme of gardening and craft activities monthly at weekends during term times and weekly during school holidays. 

 

We hope that the children are enjoying the sessions and will continue to ‘plant and grow’. At the last junior session, we had to turn away disappointed children from the event and we want to avoid this. 

 

These workshops have an educational element and one of the outcomes is to get children more involved in gardening and growing food.  We are giving priority to children who can consistently attend over the life of the project over those who wish to attend one session only. 

 

There are over 60 children on the register and a total of 26 children can attend each event.  As we have more children than spaces, there isn’t room for everyone to register for each session and there are no guarantees that children will be able to attend all the sessions.  We want to ensure that all sessions are full.  We also have to abide by Covid restrictions – which necessitate everyone attending being booked in in advance.   

 

To maximise coverage, we are applying the following rules: 

 

  • Only those people on the session register will be able to attend the event.  The register will be filled initially from people who attended the last event.  If additional spaces are available the register will be opened to others on the list, with those who gave notice of non-attendance at the top of the list and ‘no-shows’ at the bottom. 

  • The register will be open 8 days before each session and participants will be given 4 days to respond on a first come basis.  They will be informed 3 days before each session that they have a place.   

 

  • We are currently planning for the weekly summer holiday events on Wednesdays and Thursdays and will be extending the register as not everyone from the Saturday workshops can attend.   

 

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the parents who have worked with us to ensure that these are enjoyable, fulfilling and worthwhile events.
