Each session is different from the last and we cover everything from planting your own vegetables to recycling containers.

The kids will have a great time making friends and learning the magic of the outdoors, while supervised by our trained Slug club leaders. We understand that these days, more than ever, it is so important to get children to stay active and healthy and to enjoy the wonderful benefits of gardening.

Don’t forget to dress messy as we love to get our hands dirty at Griffin’s. For full details check out the Slug club on www.griffinsgardencentre.ie  or email info@griffinsgardencentre.ie  or Text 087 9008235. Limited Spaces.
