    Event Details

    Description

    Tallangatta Early Years Learning Centre parents have worked tirelessly with the local community to raise funds for the purchase of new free standing garden beds. The community garden boxes encourage involvement and supports children’s interests in insects, interest and healthy foods. Children will nurture and watch their food grow.

    As an extension of the project, children, parents, families and community members will be engaged in the selection, purchase and planting out of edible plants in the new gardens. Participants will get actively involved in an educational gardening workshop. We will explore different plants and talk about their countries of origin. We will purchase seeds and plants.

    We will use a local bus service for transport to Bunnings, then a visit to a community park (Les Stone Park) for a healthy lunch before returning to the Tallangatta Early Years Learning Centre for a community planting and Children's Week celebration.
