Early Years Care

How wonderful it has been that The Little Diggers Play Group from Early Years Care have been visiting the Barrack Heights Community Garden for quite some time now. Finally yesterday, I got to play too and had the pleasure of meeting our wonderful visitors.

First there was another lovely visitor who was giving a workshop about worms and then the children were able to experience first hand what the worms are like.

There is nothing so awesome then a ball of squishy worms!!

This is serious discussion taking place here

When I started cutting more bana grass for the teepee, the kids imagination just went crazy with ideas and everyone was having fun. This group are rowing their boats.

There's always room for an extra cubby house at the garden

I love how this little fella is enjoying the feel of this raised garden bed.

Good to see lovely pieces of artwork being created in the garden.

What is so special about yesterday is how wonderful it is to receive great feedback about the place. Both the children and adults enjoy their time there and more carers have since joined the group since it started. It truly is a space where play can be cultivated, creativity pursued and connections with the community are made.
