Join us for a 'World Earth Day' weekend activity

World Earth Day is a time for us to be aware of just how important it is to care for our natural resources. While the Gunby estate cares for vast stretches of nature, there’s always more that can be done.

Friday 22 - Sunday 24 April 2022 (11am - 3pm)

Come and craft your very own sustainable plant pot. Plant a sunflower seed and receive a certificate so you can proudly share your achievement. Flower power!

While this event is free (normal admission applies), we encourage you to help the National Trust’s plant-a-tree efforts. By donating the suggested amount of £2 while you are here, you would be healing the planet as we plant more trees to bring joy to the world and everyone who lives in it. You can find out more about the National Trust's plant-a-tree initiative here.
