Visit to Chiswick House Kitchen Gardens

Last Friday, a group of Year 1 and 2 children and some of their mums visited the kitchen gardens at Chiswick House to take part in a gardening workshop. 

The children went on a hunt in the garden to find different fruits and vegetables.  They were shown how a potato grows in the soil underneath the potato plant.  The children smelt rosemary and picked their own raspberries and black currants.  Everyone was given a sunflower seed to plant, water and take home.  We looked at the life cycle of bees and the volunteers explained how the bees pollinate the plants when they gather nectar.  The children were fascinated by the inside of the a beehive.  We were also shown a wormery, a bin in which the worms eat the compost and produce magic worm juice, which is used to feed the plants.  The children and mums were also put to work using forks to weed the garden!

After the workshop, we all went for a picnic and enjoyed the beautiful gardens. 

Please visit the gallery to view more photos from the trip.

Thank you so much to the kind volunteers who showed the children their kitchen garden with such enthusiasm.
