The UK’s leading garden center retailer is hosting a free sustainable workshop on Sunday February 6 in Lynn for the Little Seedlings Club to learn how to grow indoors.
Suitable for children aged 4-10, this workshop will take place in the Dobbies’ Lynn store and will encourage children to take advantage of the cold winter months and start growing fruits, vegetables and herbs indoors.
Kids will learn which fruits and vegetables can be grown successfully indoors, the best technique for “chittering” potatoes to prepare for sowing, and all the benefits and uses of indoor herbs.
Dobbies will also educate children about the benefits of growing your own for their health and the planet. Home-grown produce creates no plastic waste and also reduces food waste because you only harvest what you need. On top of that, locally grown vegetables reduce carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels.
Sarah Murray, Head of Partnerships and Events, said: “At Dobbies we are always looking for ways to help our customers be sustainable and we are delighted to educate and encourage the next generation of gardeners to use practices durable.
“Our gardening club allows children from all walks of life to come together and connect with each other in a friendly group setting. By getting to know the plants in their garden, their wildlife and their environment, we strive to feed their minds with fun activities.
“Our small seedling club is always popular and places fill up quickly. We encourage anyone wishing to bring their children to our King’s Lynn store to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Advance reservations are required to secure your spot at this free event at Dobbies’ Lynn store. For more information on how your little one can participate, visit www.dobbies.com/events
