February Half Term Fun: Under Your Feet at RHS Garden BridgewaterKristy Stott, Theatre Editor
Pull on your wellies and grab your waterproofs for February Half Term Fun: Under Your Feet at RHS Garden Bridgewater. Marvel at all of the things you never knew about the fascinating world beneath us.
With plenty of opportunities to get hands-on with planting fun and amazing mini-beasts, RHS Bridgewater has many activities to keep the whole family busy this half term. Discover more about the incredible root systems of trees, the soil and all of the underground creatures working hard to keep our gardens and green spaces looking lush and healthy.

Happening every day throughout the half term: the ‘Under Your Feet’ self-guided discovery trail around the beautiful Bridgewater Gardens. With lots to see and learn, little ones will enjoy discovering just how important soil is for our plants, the insects who live in it, and the planet.
During your visit be sure to check in with the Bridgewater pigs during feeding time too. Get up close during a feeding-time talk and find out how they use mud and soil to help themselves (and us).

With a range of drop-in sessions running throughout the half term, mini gardeners and explorers can make their very own 5-star worm hotel, enjoy a kitchen scrap gardening workshop or get up close and personal with a range of creepy crawlies, courtesy of ZooLab. There will also be opportunities to create a paper plate garden and explore the stunning woodland and its inhabitants during a spotter trail. Smaller nature lovers can relax during a storytelling session with Ursula Holden Gill and make lots of noise during ‘Burrows, Worms and Roots’, an interactive song and play session for babies and toddlers.
We love that all of the half term activities are free with garden admission. Additionally, Salford residents can visit the garden for free every Tuesday. Offering heaps of hands-on fun and lots of areas to explore, RHS Garden Bridgewater is a brilliant trip out for nature lovers of all ages.
