Nature Nurture at Borde Hill Garden

Nature Nurture at Borde Hill Garden

The forest school session run by Nature Nurture Sussex as part of the Kids Summer Fun event at Borde Hill Garden was thoroughly enjoyable for both adults and children. The children were completely absorbed the entire time and took home a good quality self-made bug hotel and a beautiful hand printed flag. The Hapa Zome is a simple, but really effective, craft idea which you could recreate at home and involved design, co-ordination and quite a bit of aggression with the rubber mallet! There was also a slack line and a well stocked mud kitchen and the activities were child-led, with participants free to chose exactly what appealed to them and how long they wanted to spend in each area.
