RHS Harlow Carr is inviting families to discover the joys of planting and harvesting vegetables this May half term, with a week of fun family activities at the Garden.

The half-term event is jam-packed with activities that will enlighten visitors on the joys of grow-your-own. From seeds and soil, and field and vine, then onto our plates – learn where fruit and veg come from and grow your very own edible feast.

Follow a trail to find the Fruit and Vegetable Superheroes, pot up your very own tomato plant to take home, and join the Garden Detectives for Edible Garden Tours or take part in the Veg Olympics. From a potato & spoon race, to a leek relay race and cabbage shotput – there’s something for every athlete!
