Teachers Open Day Saturday October 19th

Free open day welcomes teachers to wildlife friendly garden

Wimborne’s Knoll Gardens is inviting teachers to visit free-of-charge on Saturday 19 October. Featuring stunning autumn colour, the garden which is renowned for its ornamental grasses and naturalistic style, is a perfect late season visit.

The free Teachers’ Open Day has been organised by the Knoll Gardens Foundation which exists to promote the benefits of its naturalistic style and offer ideas to help everyone welcome wildlife into their gardens.

”Teachers can play an incredibly important role in inspiring the next generation of gardeners and opening their eyes to the amazing range of wildlife a garden can support,” said Knoll Gardens Foundation Chairman Peter Gear, “As we celebrate our first autumn Festival of Grasses at Knoll we were keen to encourage local teachers to come along and see what we are up to in east Dorset, and hopefully provide the inspiration to get involved with our drive to promote wildlife-friendly gardening across the generations.”


Knoll Gardens’ Teachers’ Open Day is one of a series of Community Open Days run by the charity throughout the year.

Teachers will be admitted free-of-charge to the garden from 11 am – 4pm on Saturday 19 October and are asked to show appropriate ID on arrival to prove their teaching status.
