‘We are all educators here’
Tanya Olsen, owner Royal City Nursery

Royal City Nursery is committed to sharing information and providing education about how we can live within a healthy, sustainable community. To that end we are continually working to find ways to encourage gardeners of every age to explore and engage with the world outside our doors.

Kid Zone is about hands-on learning opportunities for Children ages 5 – 9

Unless a workshop is expressly ‘NO PARENTS ALLOWED’, parents or caregivers are encouraged to participate and engage in the activities with their children as a way of exploring our world with your child.


A great way to say, “I love you”. Kids will decorate a flower pot with paint and their finger prints, and then pick a plant from the selection provided to put into their painted pot. This is a wonderful, lasting gift for Mom or Grandma or any other important ladies in your child’s life. Adults will work with the children to help them complete their project.

Cost: $10 + HST per child includes one pot, one plant and art supplies to complete the project.


NO PARENTS ALLOWED for this one.

 Children will paint a clay pot and then plant it as a way to say thank you to someone who has inspired them. A great way to say thank you to Teachers, coaches or anyone who has made your child flourish.  While your child is creating you can browse the Garden Centre or Tsuga Boutique to find inspiration of your own.
