In April students from the Montessori school came to the Gardens to learn about Permaculture, soils and planting. In the first session they got their hands dirty in the soil looking for soil life like earthworms and bugs. The composting worms were an endless source of fascination for them as they looked into our worm farms trying to spot the composting worms. Making their own compost had them running around finding leaves, sticks and composting material. After their well-earned break they were guided into the wonderful world of seasons, seeds and planting. The school hopes to get their own vegetable patch up and running and we have been invited to come and see their progress in the near future.
To celebrate seniors week YCG is hosting a free Grandparents and Grandkids morning on Tuesday, August 21st 10 am – 12 pm.
Come and have some fun doing simple garden crafts. We will also go on a garden walkabout to see lots of flowers and insects, worms and chooks.
Please wear old clothes as there may be paint, glue and of course dirt!
Bring a hat, food, drink bottle. Filtered rainwater available.
You are welcome to use our tea and coffee making facilities to make a cuppa.
The park next door is a great place to have a play and eat your packed lunch afterwards!
