Get creative with The Garden Classroom

Learn more about the trees around us by making nature-spotting tools for The Garden Classroom pupils to use in their lessons

What you'll get from us

  • Learn how to identify trees that we walk past every day

  • Get a mini boost to your CV by contributing to some educational outdoor learning for children

  • The chance to meet like-minded and green fingered neighbours

  • Be inspired to get walking out and about in Islington looking at trees and nature

  • You'll get another star towards your free Udderlicious Ice cream!

  • Get tips on designing a gardening session for children (useful if you're a parent or carer)

What we need from you

  • A passion to learn more about the trees around our neighbourhood

  • You're handy at making good quality tree identifying tools for children to use

  • Some crafting experience and you're a pro when it comes to cutting out with scissors

What's it like?

  • I'm an actor and find these workshops really increase children's confidence and engagement with stories. Often the teacher will be surprised at how a shy child blossoms, which makes it all worth while!
