Children's Workshop - Chicken Cuddle & Feeding

You are invited to meet our friendly chickens and sting-less native bees and play in our Nest Community Garden! What a wonderful way to children and adults to learn about the importance of animals in our lives, how to be gentle with other living things and most importantly where eggs come from.

Any age is welcome, however please book one ticket per child. Parents are not required to book a ticket. Eco play days can be arranged on request if you are unable to attend the scheduled events. Feel free to follow us on facebook "Garden Project @ The Nest Community" to keep up to date with other children's workshops.

There is a maximum of 6 participants in each workshop, to minimise the hens becoming overwhelmed. Parents are required to remain on site and will need to complete forms retaining to medical and safety concerns.

Whilst the workshop is free of charge, bookings are essential and can be made through Eventbrite. For any questions please contact Belinda on

- weather permitting, all events will go ahead. If raining please check facebook to see updates regarding possible cancellations.

What to bring:
- gentle hands and a calm nature (being too loud & rough will stop the hens from laying)
- any special scraps that you would like to feed them or our compost heap or worm farm                     
- sunscreen and a hat recommended
