KidsFest 2013

On the weekend I had the pleasure of being a part of the KidsFest finale at Killalea State Park. Although there was nothing specific planned at the garden it didn't stop Barrack Heights Community Garden from having a presence at the festival as I took along some bamboo and bana grass to construct a teepee for the kids to enjoy.

Well, if you look closely, I did have some assistance from such Nobel persons.

Oh, and by the way, check out the most divine view.

I also decided that a butterfly palace should be installed and I loved how so many little children (and adults) enjoyed the space
As it doesn't take four hours to construct a bana grass teepee, I took along some glue and cardboard for children to make collages from found materials. 
I was impressed with their work
When the afternoon session was finished I was asked to reconstruct the teepee at the camp-site and was glad that I had some willing helpers to do the job.
Unfortunately I didn't stay long for the later events but the atmosphere was great and I'm sure that those who stuck around were happy campers.

Here's to an awesome 2013 KidsFest
