Planting Seeds with Poetry

Sunday 12 June, 11am and 2pm

‘I am the seed  
that grew the tree 
 that gave the wood 
 to make the page 
 to fill the book with poetry’ 
 - from ‘Windsong’ by Judith Nicholls  

Join us for a morning or afternoon of seed planting in the Mansion House garden. 

Whether you are completely new to gardening or know a thing or two about seeds already, come along to… 

  • Develop your gardening skills 
  • Learn about natural heritage  
  • Explore the important role plants play in our lives 
  • Meet new people and spend time outdoors together 

This activity is free of charge thanks to players of the National Lotterty, if you book a ticket and your plans change, please let us know so we can offer your place to someone else. 

This event will be cancelled in extreme weather conditions and we recommend wearing appropriate clothes for gardening outdoors. This activity is wheelchair accessible and seats can be provided for those that need them.
