Bush Tucker Community Planting Day and Working Bee Bush Tucker Community Planting Day and Working Bee

Families, community groups and individuals – you are invited to join Poowong Pre School further establish our Bush Tucker Gardens for the children.

All in the community are encouraged to participate in the planting of garden beds and general tidy up of the yards.

The bush tucker gardens aim to raise awareness of indigenous culture and ecological knowledge, as well as native habitats and biodiversity. Following the event, the spaces created will be used in an ongoing set of activities for Pre School children, including cooking and eating parts of the plants, weaving with the grasses, investigating and drawing the biodiversity present.

We will be working from a plan developed by Julie Weatherhead from Peppermint Ridge Farm.

There are a few odd jobs such as fixing some chairs, patching the wooden sandpit border and paling fence, if you can help with this too.

Bring your own gloves and tools if you can. This will be a fun day for all – see you there!!
