Bring your children along to celebrate Easter by learning how to grow a garden full of favourite vegies.

We’ll learn how to plant carrots, lettuce, celery and cabbages. Children will plant a patch in the organic gardens and take home a bio pot of their own vegies too.

Oh yes, and we will have an Easter egg hunt of course! 

Cost $20 per child over 3 includes cuppa for parents and morning tea for kids

What a lovely morning it was. Thanks so much for your generous comments, your help on the morning and for bringing her along.Your little girl was such a gem. I think she is the new green thumb in your family! You'll all be eating food she has grown in no time. Keep her passion alive with opportunities for growing flowers and herbs too and follow my ezine (from  or ecobotanica facebook for some weekly plant and food suggestions. Kind regards, Linda

Had a great time at this workshop this morning. My daughter was inspired and  has now made seventeen newspaper pots that are waiting for soil and seeds and I reckon there will be another seventeen made before I'm even out of bed in the morning. Bean and pea seeds that were planted in handmade pots at the workshop have had their c-weed feed and are now being eagerly watched for any sign of growth. Thanks Linda!

Hi Barb Don't forget to book in with me if you haven't already. 33492962 I'm looking forward to it too. I love teaching little people to feed themselves and connect with the earth.
