A family day with fun for all, 11am-3pm, including a bench-making workshop for a community bench in the arboretum, story-telling and tree care, and a chance to enjoy the beauty and peace of the arboretum in spring.
Gather by the gazebo at 11am and, for those coming late, find us by the edibles nursery at the north-west corner of the arboretum. Please bring food and drink to share at a picnic lunch.
Try your hand at bench-making under the expert guidance of Eddie Church, have fun, and leave your permanent mark in the Follaton arboretum for many to enjoy for years to come. This activity is suitable for teenagers and adults. Limited places, so book early.
For others coming to enjoy the other events of the day, booking is not essential but is appreciated, and the day is suitable for old and young!
