National Children's Gardening Week - 26 May to 3 June 2018
National Children's Gardening Week is about promoting the benefits that gardens have for children. HTA members can get involved in lots of ways, big or small. You could give out children's gardening project ideas to your customers or host an event at your garden centre. HTA retailers can order free point of sale, posters, and children's stickers etc to use in store.
Promoting gardening projects on Facebook
We'll post gardening project ideas at least every week on Facebook in the run up to National Children's Gardening Week. If you want to share these ideas with your customers all you need to do 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
National Children's Gardening Week is also being used 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 industry to get behind.
