The generous folks at the Vu Hortus who already host my Wild Weed Kids program have kindly offered their location for all my school-related children’s excursions and field-trips. I can’t tell you what an honour this is for me!
I’ll also make the VU Hortus my preferred location for special events for children – for example – birthday parties with a nature theme. And we’ll meet here as well for the upcoming Cookin’ Wild (more on this when I get a chance – this one is full, but we can plan another for end of summer).
I love the Vu Hortus Botanicus – not only is it relaxed and unpretentious, but it is run almost entirely by volunteers. Please visit their website for more information on what they offer and to sign the petition to keep them open to the public (admission is always free!!) for as long as possible.
By the way, you can also buy all kinds of indoor and outdoor plants here, heirloom veggies and seed, and much more. Come by, take a look, buy a coffee, sign the guestbook…
