Wild Garden Children’s Group, Rattery.

We meet weekly on a Friday from 2-4pm. The group is focused on early years, walking - 7/8, but is open to all children (accompanied by an adult).

We hold a Children’s Fire fortnightly where we learn, share and celebrate the seasons together. There is a recommended donation amount of £5 for an adult and child, and £2 for siblings and/or other additions for these sessions.

You are welcome to arrive from 10am, then we gather around the fire at 10:30am to check in and share a snack and a cuppa. There will be a planned activity which is very much ‘opt-in’

In the weeks in between the garden is open for a social gathering to anyone who would like to come along, hang out and enjoy the garden. These weeks will be my work days so there will still be things to learn and get involved with, if you like. These sessions are free, but please bring your own snacks.

Please bring any extra snacks, as you need, and dress for the outdoors. 

The group is secular and based around natural learning, nature connection with some forest school elements.

The weather is brightening so do feel free to bring a picnic and stay for lunch after.
