Join Catherine Sewell (Play Specialist), Mal Jackson (Abbotsford Convent’s Gardener) and Samantha Roberts (proud Wurundjeri and Dja Dja Wurrung woman) for an outdoor expedition. Singing, storytelling and hands-on activities, kids will learn about Poorneet (Tadpole) Season in the Kulin Nation’s calendar, discover how to plant seeds, and more.

Kids will have the opportunity to go on a guided walk, learn more about the plants and animals that live in the area, and sow seasonal vegetables in seedling trays which you can take home to grow. Children will also create a natural clay-stone print, an activity sheet and additional seeds to plant at home.

Suitable for kids aged 3-5 years
