About the Presenters
The Living Classroom Project is an outdoor learning program that has been functioning for over 17 years in schools across NSW and Queensland. Using experiential, hands-on learning, the programs are tailored to primary and secondary school students, introducing them to the principles and practices of permaculture design, to build and plant organic vegetable gardens, at both home and school.
Living Classroom is different from other gardening programs in that we create seating circles, bed designs, 4 seasons vegetable gardens tied in with water harvesting via swales, food forestry to improve micro-climate of playgrounds, and cafeteria composting – lunch to soil.
All teachers have degrees in Education, the Principal is a qualified landscape architect, and 2 of the educators are PDC qualified.
The principles demonstrated in all Living Classroom programs support disaster prevention and crisis management.
This month we’ve found lots of Easter surprises for kids to create.
We’ll have painting adventures & wonderful things to make from nature. Weather permitting we’ll be doing a Nature based Easter Hunt in the gardens with lots of surprises.
Suitable for ages 5 and above and all children to be accompanied by an adult.
Gayle & Sharni our wonderful volunteers will be running the Easter surprises & Painting adventures for Kids
Come along and watch, learn and participate as Elisabeth Fekonia prepares and cooks a fully fermented pizza. The pizza will be made by volunteers from the group to make a sourdough pizza base, fermented toppings and of course the Mozzarella cheese! Taste testing of the baked pizzas will be available at the end of the session.
A limited number of take-home recipe sheets, showing recipes for the fermented dough, tomato paste, bean pate, mozzarella and any other ingredients added at the time, will be available for sale on the day for an additional cost of $5 [cash please], or can be purchased and downloaded from the Yandina Community Gardens website for the same price of $5, after the workshop.
About the Presenter:
It all began 26 years ago when Elisabeth and her late husband Frank decided to become food self sufficient from their 6 acre farm at Black Mountain. After a steady diet of pumpkins and chokos, Elisabeth knew there needed to be more diversity in their diet if they were to remain healthy. Many trips to the library taught how to ferment food such as cheese, sourdough, wine, kimchi, miso and many other fermented foods. Consequently these many fermented foods were grouped into short workshops to teach others how to create their own ferments and this has resulted in a business 15 years ago. Elisabeth travels all over Queensland and beyond to teach these fermenting classes and she has just had an inspiration to make pizzas from fermented foods- with home mozzarella of course!
