There will be tea, coffee and cake at the end of the session in the Bournville Hub on Bournville Green. (The Hub asks for a small donation for the refreshments; 50p for hot drinks, £1 for cake).

What to wear & info for parents and guardians
All tools needed for the planting session will be provided. Please wear warm clothes, gardening gloves and shoes suitable for gardening/outdoor work. All welcome but please note children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
