In this workshop, listen to the story of Superworm told by Little Forest School and meet some of the minibeasts that live in our woodlands and gardens at Wakehurst.

You'll learn some super worm facts and create a 'grunting stick' to charm the worms from the mud. Once found, you will use mud, leaves, grass and sawdust to feed the worms and create your own wormery to take home with you and enjoy a holiday...don’t forget to let the worm go back into nature to help your plants grow.

We will also provide mud kitchen equipment and create a Treasure or Trash sorting activity: Children sort man-made and natural materials and decide which is treasure and which is trash leading to discussion about recycling and keeping our environment clean.

Suitable for children aged 3 years + (siblings under 2 are free) pre-booking essential
