This will be an ongoing week long activity where children will be supervised during some adult yoga classes or can work with yourself whenever you like.

ORGANIC ORCHARD ACTIVITIES - The spring is the time for managing the grape vines as they spring to life, picking the fresh leaves for traditional Greek Dolmades (stuffed vine leaves), finding wild greens for food or tinctures, managing the spring crops, planting the summer crops. We will be setting up a new vegetable area laying in the irrigation pipes etc at this time. You are welcome to get involved in anything you want, Petros will be happy for the help and to share his knowledge with you. Small wheel barrow just waiting for a keen gardener.

ARTS & CRAFTS - There will be a selection of equipment for the kids to get creative with Easter crafts. Collect stones to paint, make collages or signs for the garden. They can also get creative with a little facepainting.

PARENTS & CHILDREN :  This is an orchard where trees beg to be climbed, hammocks wait to be swung in, and butterflies need to be chased. Children are free to enjoy the space, help in the vegetable garden, play games galore and joIn in classes that suit them. There is only one way in and out of the property and the gate will be kept closed. Whilst your children are free to wander around we do remind you that they remain your responsibilty at all times unless you have left them at a specific kids class. Clare is a DBS Police checked childrens teacher who works with Infants, Juniors and Senior school in the UK. In case you are worried about noise during classes, we suggest some screen time or reading to be suitable at that time, or some days there will be kids activities planned during class time too. We ask that this is a device free zone at any other time please.
