School Workshops

We can visit your school to carry out workshops in the classroom and playground. Topics include:

  • Biodiversity
  • Minibeasts
  • Would a Gruffalo live in your playground?
  • Stick Man – lots of stick activities including nest building, a web weaver for spiders.
  • Shrek – mud and minibeasts in your playground
  • Using your senses

We also offer STEM activities on an ecology/environmental theme.

Cost is £90 plus VAT for a half day and £150 plus VAT for a whole day.

We can give advice and workshops on a variety of Ecoschool topics including biodiversity, improving the playground for wildlife and recycling. We also offer workshops for eco days of action.


We offer a wide range of activities on science, technology, engineering and maths, all within your playground. Topics include The Gruffalo, Big Bird Bake Off and Minibeasts Go.

Wildlife gardening

We can help you plan and construct garden improvements for wildlife including minibeast hotels, ponds, raised beds to grow flowers for butterflies and bees. We can also build you a mud kitchen. Please get in touch for details of costs.
