Castle Gardens – Wild Words

If you like stories, if you love nature, if you can’t wait to get your hands dirty and have your eyes opened wide, if you live to have your mind expanded and just can’t wait to get into the great outdoors, then WILD WORDS is just the thing for you.

Come join Storyteller Ian Douglas and Environmental educator Jo Mayland for a magical fact and folklore finding experience that will fill your head with answers to such earth shattering questions as;

What do thistles like to do on their holidays?

Why do dragonflies like to invite frogs round for lunch?

What really lives under a mushroom?

What do slugs actually like to munch?

(N.b this experience could seriously effect the way in which you see the great outdoors…….you have been warned)

Find out more about Ian Douglas on his website: www.iandouglas-storyteller.co.uk

Wild Words is part of the Castle Gardens event.
