Teas & Toddles

Funded By


Teas and Toddles, based at Root ‘N’ Fruit Community Garden, is a weekly, outdoor group, focussed on teaching pre-school children (0-5yrs) to enjoy the outdoors and learn where food comes from. The group also gives parents and carers somewhere to socialise and make connections.

I love this group- I don’t know what we are going to do over winter as it’s our favourite place to come.


During sessions we encourage the children to play and explore freely but also to participate in lots of fun nature-based games, craft, and activities. Parents and carers are also encouraged to get stuck into the messy activities with their children. At the group, participants get a chance to taste new fruits and vegetables and take away samples of produce that is grown at the allotment. If you enjoy the outdoors and have an interest in gardening/ growing your own food, then Teas & Toddles is the group for you.

I have never seen him so excited over what he’s eating, this has definitely made me more confident to try new foods with him.


It’s a fantastic site, it makes a change to the usual hectic groups we have been to, it’s so peaceful and easy going here.
