Individual gardening awards
structured programme for Mini Growers, Garden Explorers and Eco Club
As part of the gardening programme we developed a 'stamp and badge' scheme for all ages. It makes children more focused on the range of activities, provides structure for the whole gardening year and is a fun way of learning new skills while making little steps into a gardening world.
There are 2 schemes available: one for younger and one for older children. The former one focuses on a general outdoor learning while the latter one is a more systematic individual gardening diary.
It takes about 1-2 years of regular gardening activities to collect all the stamps and be awarded the expert gardener badge.
It also takes about 1-2 years to collect all the stamps in order to collect all 4 elements badges.
