The Playgroup kids have been busy planting carrots, lettuce, snow peas and zinnias in the 3 planter boxes donated to us by Bunnings Doncaster. Bunnings also donated the soil and the seedlings. The planters are out on the terrace where we are watching them grow so we can then eat the vegetables when they are ready! Not sure that we are going to be able to feed all 62 children and babies who come to Playgroup each week though!
Libby has also been talking with the kids about plants and bulbs whilst giving the kids and mums a hands-on experience of growing things. The kids are loving it and the mums are benefitting from Libby’s knowledge and wisdom of many years of gardening. We are hoping that we can encourage the 48 families who come to Playgroup each week, to plant their own vegies and flowers at their own homes.
We are most grateful to Bunnings for their wonderful donation
