Join in on a pumpkin fun day!
02 March 2024
Only 50 places available (maximum 2 children per 1 adult). Adults need to book a space for themselves as well.
We welcome kids, mums and dads for some fun exploring the bountiful pumpkin varieties in the garden! With a hop, skip and jump we’ll go on an exciting pumpkin treasure hunt – exploring the enormous Atlantic Giant pumpkin and crawling into the Snail that’s covered with climbing calabashes and gourds. As we walk through the belly of the Puff Adder, children of all ages will learn about the different varieties of pumpkin: Turk’s turban, flat white boerpampoen, deep orange Cinderella, delicious golden hubbard squash, speckled swan, best-to-eat muscat and, of course, Halloween. With the help of their parents, children can cut, scoop and hammer their own pumpkins into shape.
When all the pumpkins are shipshape, we will light a candle inside each creation and enjoy a hotdog and ice cream from the Greenhouse Restaurant.
Note: As we’ll be working with sharp objects, children must be accompanied by an adult. Maximum two children (between five and ten years old) per adult. This workshop is presented in English. Adults need to book a space for themselves and cover the applicable fee.
