We attended a workshop at the Prospect Flower Power in the first week of the July school holidays and my two preschoolers had lots of fun. In addition to learning about worms and planting some strawberries, we went on a little walking tour to see herbs, vegetable seedlings, fruit trees, worm farm and tadpoles. Plus look for snail shells.
The staff were very friendly and engaging and managed the group of about 20 kids really well. All materials are provided and kids will be able to take home one potted seedling.
