To allow customers to undertake activities to grow and harvest a variety of seeds and do arts & crafting

by Mhorag Drew in Culloden, Scotland, United Kingdom

I have a new love for all things gardening and have always been a very crafty person. I found that a lot of people would ask on social media "anything on for the kids this weekend" so I thought of a way to tackle this problem. 

This is not a traditional garden centre, our main aim is to increase knowledge and learning about growing plants in a fun way. The main focus of The Pumpkin House, initially, was to provide pumpkin based activities, e.g. planting, growing, harvesting and carving of pumpkins. However, as the growing of Pumpkins is a seasonal activity, this has been expanded to include fruit and vegetables, which can be grown throughout the seasons. There are a selection of Activities planned in order to achieve year round planting.

Customers can participate in a variety of ways, they can either:

Plant seeds take them home in a plant pot painted on site
 Customers will also be engaged in other activities e.g. classes in Pumpkin carving; creating environmentally friendly garden items, e.g. Bird boxes,  

The Plan for Year One is to obtain a large vehicle that will be turned into a mobile crafting centre where we can hold activities and attend events/birthday parties.  

In Year Two, the aim is to buy a piece of land and build our premises including the provision of greenhouses, creating of a cafe and indoor/outdoor play areas. This will also enable us to take on further staff.

From Year three onwards, we will continue to review our business and activates and make amendments as necessary to keep our offering fresh and exciting.

I would like to thank you for your interest in The Pumpkin House.
