Bug Hotel Workshop & Woodland Lunch – Family Workshop

Join us in the woods for an exciting collaboration with Renee from The Girl Who Gardens!


We’re combining ecology and food for a family morning beneath the trees at our woodland glen on the beautiful Priory Farm Estate.


Join us for a lovely family friendly workshop for budding naturalists.  Build your own Bug Hotel to take home and learn what insects you can find in your garden with Renée AKA the Girl who Gardens, suitable for children and adults alike.


Before we start the workshop, we’ll learn how to light a fire in the great outdoors, lighting the fire upon which we’ll cook our lunch on!


Following the workshop, we’ll sit down at our shared dining table beneath the trees for a delicious 2-course lunch, inspired by seasonal, local ingredients.
