Learning Through Action offers free Council run education programmes that are experiential and interactive. These programmes encourage students to be immersed in unique environments and learn about conservation, ecosystems, sustainability, biodiversity, native trees and plants and organic waste.

The Botanic Gardens is an ideal setting for school groups interested in relevant and authentic environmental learning experiences. The Gardens offers great facilities, large lawns studded with huge old trees, conservatories full of carnivorous and creeping plants and a visitor centre with interactive displays - perfect for exploring, playing and learning.
