Event description

Description

The Grounds of Alexandria is known for its beautiful garden and fresh produce cared for by our in-house Horticulturalists.

Our Green Thumb Experience is designed to share our expertise with families in a fun and engaging way. In one hour, families will be taught about horticulture and get their hands dirty planting a selection of seedlings to grow their very own garden. You will even get to help us work on our own garden so you can come and watch your work grow in the coming months following this event.

Bring your pre-school age ones with you and let's get our hands dirty!


In this experience, you and your little ones will learn:

  • Where fresh produce comes from and seasonal produce

  • Different types of fruit and vegetable plants and seedlings

  • How to prepare and plant their own miniature flower garden that you will take home


We will happily provide:

  • Gloves

  • Soil and pots (if you wish to bring your own, please make sure it is no larger than 30cm in diameter).

  • Seedlings and seed.

  • Fertiliser.

  • Knowledge and good times.


Please note:

  • Classes run for approximately 1 hour.

  • You are invited to bring your little ones (pre-school age encouraged).

  • Please arrive at least 10 minutes before class and check in with us under the Arbour, near the fountain.

  • Classes will be held under The Arbour (near our fountain, in The Garden), it is covered from possible rain. If the location was to change, you will be notified by email the day prior to the event.

  • This is not a drop-off service. This event is for parents AND their children.


We hope to see you soon!
