Family Fun Garden
The Family Fun Garden, sponsored by Flymo, and designed by the Skinny Jean Gardener, is inspired by children and includes all the fun things they can get up to in the great outdoors that will keep them entertained all day long!
The Skinny Jean Gardener took his inspiration for this garden from his three year old daughter Olive. Along with Olives help, Lee spent time workshopping ideas with local school pupils from Larmenier & Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School, meaning this garden will not only be made for kids, it will have also been designed and tested by them too. Stay tuned for sneak peaks of the garden!
About The Skinny Jean Gardener
Lee Connelly, The Skinny Jean Gardener, is best known for his work as the CBBC Blue Peter Gardener, specialising in children's gardening. Lee first started gardening in 2014 at the age of 26 with his brother on a local allotment. Lee then moved on to TV's Jimmy Doherty's farm to build a new kitchen garden for his restaurant, getting involved with Jamie Oliver's food revolution and soon after building the first allotment on Blue Peter. Through his other work on TV, online, on stage and with his family gardening podcasts, Lee inspires families and children to get outside in the garden, create memories and enjoy the space they have. Lee believes that no matter how big you or your garden is, we can all be gardeners.
