Gardening for children

Green fingered youngsters are getting their hands dirty at The Pavilion Garden Centre, where TV gardening expert and author Peter

Dowdall is inspiring a life long love of the great outdoors.

As a father and a gardener, Peter is passionate about the benefits that gardening presents for children and the appreciation it

brings for the environment around them. Peter’s childrens gardening classes demonstrate to children that not all creepy crawlies

are bad, how waste from our kitchen can be broken down to make soil for our plants, how a seed will turn into a tree or produce

flowers and fruit and the differences in the leaves of our native trees.
