Gardening with children encourages their interest in nature and enthusiasm early on, and gives them invaluable basic life skills and an understanding of the world around them. Growing their own fruit and vegetables also means that children are less likely to be ‘fussy eaters’ and develop a healthy attitude to eating fruit and vegetables.

n 2018 the classes at Ben Reid Garden Centre and Aberdeen Science Centre will run on a monthly basis.  The classes will run from March to October.  Classes at both venues cost £7 per child per class and can be booked on a pay as you go basis payable in advance by class on our website. Adults go free. Classes at Ben Reid take place in the Greenhouse. Classes at the Aberdeen Science Centre will take place in the Garden.
