Trew’s Garden

In the seemingly ordinary garden of Mrs Pumpkin, a curious eye may notice some truly unordinary events. A small mysterious creature called Trew explores this world with naive wonder and joy, bringing harmony and fun to everyone on the way.

Mrs Pumpkin, a botany teacher, cultivates marvellous plants in her garden and cooks some yummy dishes with them. At first glance, her garden seems nothing out of the ordinary. The snails and lizards snoop among the flowers, birds and dragonflies dance in the air, moles and worms tunnel underground — all the usual. And yet, there is one small mysterious childlike creature living here — everyone calls her “Trew”. Mrs Pumpkin is unable to identify her species and is clueless about where Trew has come from. It couldn’t possibly be the result of her experiments in the greenhouse? Charming and curious, Trew needs to discover lots of things: why the leaves are falling, how old is the stone, how a bird finds its own voice, how to make friends and how to live in harmony with yourself and the world around you.

Director’s statement
Our engaging garden adventures aim at arousing children’s interest in spending time outdoors, observing the life of little bugs, planting flowers and taking care of nature. We want our show to contribute to a healthy personality, to build a feeling of calm and harmony in our viewers that will help them weather any stress. Parents should feel their kids have a safe time with our show. So, we have fun, but no sugar rush. We may deal with serious issues and fears, but with respect to our viewers' age. We want to find a fragile poetic tone, giving stories sufficient air and contemplation.
