Get creative, make crafts and share strawberries.

Strawberry Sundays are our free creative craft workshops for families with a focus on growing and plants – delivered as part of the Unexpected Gardens programme.

Hosted by members of the Cultivating Connections network, Strawberry Sundays will take place in beautiful locations surrounded by trees and flowers. Our workshops will aim to include locally sourced plant life in a wide range of craft activities, suitable for all ages.

At the end of every workshop you can make an edible bug using a variety of summer fruits to nibble on the way home.

Strawberries and juice will also be provided.

The events are completely free to attend but places should be booked in advance.
