National Children's Gardening Week - 25 May to 2 June 2019

National Children's Gardening Week (and the promotional campaign leading up to it) promotes the benefits that gardening has for children. It promotes gardening to the parents and grandparents of nursery and primary school age children. As a garden business you can tap into the campaign free of charge. Have a look at the video and our information pack on how to benefit and get involved

Inspirational gardening projects

Through to June we'll post kids' gardening project projects at least every week on Facebook in the build up to National Children's Gardening Week.  You can share these projects with your customers through your own social media or communications. The projects inspire people to 'give it a go'; they all come with a shopping list for the project and full instructions. All you need to do to share a 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 gardening projects huge exposure, inspiring more people into gardening.
