Children's Section

We love seeing children get enthusiastic about horticulture, food and nature, there is plenty of fun to be had in the garden or kitchen for the young and young at heart. Why not download some of these activities and try them out this weekend?

Izzy the Inspector Book

The booklet is free and available to print from the resources pages of the International Year of Plant Health Website.

This fun activity booklet invites children to ‘Help protect our plants with Izzy the Inspector’ - it covers topics on things like why plants are important and an introduction to plant disease, insects and fungi, to name a few, all designed to encourage children to explore the plants around them. It includes fun activities like word searches, join-the-dots and snap, so there’s something to do on rainy days too. The book is for children aged 6-11 years.
