Family nature workshops

Want to learn more about microbes?

We join forces with Dig & Delve to bring nature workshops for all the family to Spirthill near Calne, North Wiltshire.

Microbes are microscopic bacteria that inhabit our environments, bodies, water, soil, trees and the air we breathe. Microbes are integral to life but sadly modern living damages our natural microbiome. In our outdoor workshops we will explain the important role that microbes play in keeping you and our planet safe.

Rowan Wynne-Jones from Dig & Delve will lead us through a fun two hours of exploration and education in our Spirthill woods and farmland where you will engage with nature and learn more about our bacterial friends. Each session is from 10am-12pm and is split between outdoor exploring and natural crafts (which you get to take home). We close with storytelling and colouring in and provide tea, coffee and squash at the end.

Dig & Delve is based in the Cotswolds and runs outdoor workshops for clubs, home schooling and parties. Rowan comes from a gardening and permaculture heritage and is the daughter of Davina Wynne-Jones, founder of Herbs for Healing and the granddaughter of Rosemary Verey who created the beautiful, renowned gardens in Barnsley near Cirencester.

Passionate about all things outdoors, Rowan brings a wealth of experience and knowledge with her and teamed with our Microbes expert Sue Allen (co-founder of Microbz) you are guaranteed to have a fun and educational time.
