The playgroups introduce children to gardens and the things that grow and live in them. Kids get up close to snails and caterpillars, plant seeds, learn to look after plants and reap the rewards. Parents work together to make the garden productive, and the harvest is shared amongst participants. Sessions include a shared morning tea and an activity – stories, craft, gardening, music.
To join us, just come along with a gold coin donation per session plus piece of fruit to share for morning tea.
