Book Your Spring and Summer School Visits to Brigit’s Garden

Children from all around County Galway have been visiting the Garden for our Spring school workshops. They are planting seeds in the polytunnel, searching for the signs of spring in the Celtic Gardens and making bird nests in the woodlands. Schools are also celebrating Engineers Week by taking part in our exciting Nature’s Power: Energy in Action workshop.
