Garden Science book

Garden Science
was sponsored by the Whitefriars shopping centre in Canterbury, Kent, as part of its contribution towards Canterbury in Bloom 2013.

The shopping centre’s generous support for the project has enabled us to supply free copies of the book for primary and secondary school libraries across the Canterbury District. Additional copies are available to purchase on this website (BUY NOW).

Mini Garden Projects


We have produced a series of ten simple garden projects to help children observe, learn and have fun in the garden. These are available for download below - just click on the image. You will find the password to unlock the files on page 47 of the book.
