October half term family fun at Wisley

Saturday 25 October 2014 to Sunday 2 November 2014

Join us for a week of repulsive plants and frightening food! Because plants can't get up and run away from their predators they have evolved an extraordinary array of defensive mechanisms against insects and animals. Learn all about caterpillar spit as you plant seeds, carve a pumpkin, design a spider cupcake, climb a tall tree, hear tall stories and make a pumpkin hat. Activities vary daily, see website for details as some activities require booking.
