Class overview

Our School Holiday Program is composed of classes that are educational and intimate, giving each child a unique Grounds experience. This School Holidays, our masters in horticulture & fresh produce will be sharing their expertise and bringing out the creativity in each child, giving them the chance to get their hands dirty and have a whole bunch of fun.

The Grounds of Alexandria is known for its beautiful garden and fresh produce cared for by our in-house Horticulturalist. Our Grow Your Own Garden Class is designed to share our expertise with children in a fun and engaging way. In a one hour class, the kids will be taught about seasonal produce, how plants grow from seedlings, how to use potting mix and fertiliser, and for the most fun part, get their hands dirty planting a selection of seedlings to grow their very own garden.
