National Children's Gardening Week - 25 May to 2 June 2019
National Children's Gardening Week is about promoting the benefits that gardens have for children. It aims to promote gardening to nursery and primary school age children and their parents and grandparents, and is something that garden businesses, schools or other community groups can tap into free of charge.
Promoting gardening projects
From March and through to June we'll post gardening project projects at least every week on Facebook in the build up to National Children's Gardening Week. You can share these ideas with your customers through your own social media or other communications; the ideas give fantastic inspiration to give gardening a go. All you need to do to share the projects is:
1. Follow National Children's Gardening Week on Facebook -www.facebook.com/nationalchildrensgardeningweek
2. Share the posts that promote a gardening project on your own Facebook page or other social media accounts
It's that simple - by working together we can give these fun projects huge exposure, helping to inspire more young families into gardening.
Supporting Greenfingers Charity
We're also using National Children's Gardening Week to raise the profile of Greenfingers Charity to the general public. This should make it an exciting and motivating week for families and and colleagues working in the garden industry to get behind.
You'll be able to get involved in several ways in 2019. As well as sharing the gardening ideas and projects you can download artwork to use in your own promotions. As a HTA member you will be able to order free point of sale to promote the week and any offers or events you're running. The point of sale will include sticker sheets; A3 and A4 posters; table talkers; A5 leaflets and 'empty belly' posters (A2 or A3) you can use to promote anything you're doing in store. They're great for if you want to run any in-store events or promotions related to children's gardening.
You will be able to order these materials free of charge alongside point of sale materials for National Garden Gift Vouchers. You'll need a login to order online - if you'd like one our services team can set you up with this.
