Join Golden Toad for a messy, hands-on experience about growing plants from seeds and the value of upcycling your old containers.

Learn along with Errol and his sister Tia as they demonstrate how to take an old food container and decorate it for use as a plant pot at home. You can then bring your upcycled plant pot to Golden Toad's workshop where you can expect to get green fingers as you plant your seeds and learn all about what a plant needs to grow.

Age Guidance: 3 - 11 years

Running Time: 25 minutes

Workshop Times: 11:30am, 2pm & 3pm

Stockwood Discovery Centre

Stockwood Discovery Centre tells the stories of real people behind the collections, exploring the history of the region from prehistoric times to the evolution of Stockwood House and the Farley estate.

The display collections include:

  • Geology
  • Archaeology
  • Social history
  • Rural crafts

Highlights include:

  • The Wenlok Jug - a rare medieval masterpiece with strong links to Luton’s history 
  • Luton's last tram
  • The award winning display of Mossman collection of carriages - the largest collection of its kind on display in the UK.

A paradise for garden enthusiasts, Stockwood Discovery Centre is one of the few places in the country where the work of acclaimed artist Ian Hamilton Finlay can be seen on permanent display. His Improvement Garden is a classical garden in which the sculptures are an integral part of the landscape. Once part of the original Stockwood House walled areas, the Period Gardens reflect the changing styles of gardening in this country. New areas include a contemplative Sensory Garden, a colourful World Garden and a Medicinal Garden highlighting the usefulness of plants - designed with environmentally green and sustainable principles in mind.
