Education & Alert Level 4
Kia Ora Koutou Gardeners
In full cooperation with the standards of COVID-19 Alert Level 4, our education programme has discontinued all activities at Kelmarna Gardens, including postponing all educational visits and bookings for at least the next 4 weeks.
So it seems that for the next wee while we won’t be seeing you at Kelmarna, and we also can’t make plans to welcome you to the garden anytime soon.
BUT! What we can do while we’re apart is keep in touch, share ideas and stay busy by exploring our own local corners of the environment!
During this time of social distancing and staying home, we still want to help provide interactive, hands-on learning experiences that help you to explore, discover and have fun!
We are taking this opportunity to expand our online educational resources for you to use, read, watch, download and otherwise interact with from home as we all hunker down and safeguard our communities in the coming weeks.
What you might know as 'distance learning' or 'learning from home', we are going to call 'local learning'.
So help us re-frame this ‘lock-down’ as a ‘local-up’ where we suddenly have a chance to look more closely and explore more thoroughly our own local, everyday places.
Go on, Get Amongst It!
