Registration is now open for the Gardens by the Bay Children’s Holiday Programme, Garden Troopers Workshop. Kids aged 9 to 12 years old will enjoy a two-day adventure as a Junior Horticulturist. There will be Gardens by the Bay ‘behind-the-scenes’ tours as well as hand-on activities to learn more about the Gardens’ rich biodiversity.
We went along to the sneak peek recently and not only did we learn the technique behind growing baby plants from the large healthy mama plant but also picked up some Latin words relating to gardening and plants. The passionate staff drew the kids in and we know the two-day workshop will be a great opportunity for your children to get their fingers green and make new friends.
