Chinese Garden Workshop
Wed 26 April 2017, 15:30 – 17:00
Our first workshop will begin with a Treasure hunt around the established gardens to find plants from China. Guided by Mark Frith, Activities Co-ordinator and Enterprise Manager you will talk about different types of plants and how to identify them. You will also learn how to sow seeds (edible plants) and look at the location of the new Confucius garden.
Please research the above plants beforehand to understand the clues of the Scavenger hunt!
The Confucius Institute has partnered up with Hulme Community Garden Centre to run a series of Chinese garden workshops. Come along to research the history, style and plants of a Chinese garden. The group will create plant ID sticks with common, Latin, and Chinese names to form a guided walk through the gardens identifying plants that originated from China. Ultimately, the Confucius Garden will be designed and built to form a peaceful place for people to sit and start enjoying the fruits of their labour, literally!
