Garden Grubs

Kids have lots of creative and active fun in the Garden with our professional, enthusiastic educators!

This all-day school holiday program is full of fun and adventures in the Garden. Kids spend the day exploring the garden and connecting with nature!

Tuesday 15th January 2019

Look for bugs and beasties as we explore the garden. Dip net in the pond, hunt for minibeasts and meet a garden expert. Get messy creating with clay, plant Swan River Daisy seeds to take home to grow and relax with animal yoga and meditation. Plus games, outdoor play and so much more!

Explore the rainforest and make jungle slime! Take a guided tour of Latitude 23 glasshouse and a visit to the Calyx to see plants that bite!
