My Seedling Journal – available to download for FREE from our website.
We were due to host a seedling workshop today at the Parent and Child Expo, however due to an increase in COVID cases within the Nelson region and the resulting uncertainty, this was postponed.

As we can’t be there to do it with you, we would instead love to share this resource with you to do as a project with your kids at home or school.
Please share this post with any parents or teachers you might know, tag them below or direct them to our website to download ‘My Seedling Journal’.
Good luck we look forward to seeing the results!
