This month’s Little Seedlings workshop is all about the wonderful world of wild birds, from what makes a bird a bird to taking a closer look at the birds in our gardens. 

We'll cover:

  • What makes a bird a bird, covering unique features that set them apart from other creatures
  • Where the first birds came from
  • Different bird habitats 
  • Yearly migrations
  • How birds can adapt to their surroundings
  • What birds eat 
  • Birds you can spot in your own garden
  • How to keep birds fed over winter
  • How to make your own bird feeder

Please note:

  • Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • Where stores are running multiple sessions it is the same workshop delivered at each one.
  • Parents or guardians wishing to order hot drinks for the session in advance can do so during the booking process.
  • Dates and times for our Little Seedlings Clubs vary by store and not all stores are able to participate. 
  • Advance booking is required with spaces booked quickly – please book early to avoid disappointment.
  • Where a session is shown as 'Sold Out' – we're sorry, there are no more tickets available for that time.
