Fun activities for kids at Veggie Village this Sunday

A fun day of activities including art work, games, potting and planting seedlings and scare-crow dressing is planned for a series of eight children's workshops at Veggie Village Permaculture gardens.

The first workshop begins this Sunday June 8 from 9am to 12noon. Places are limited to 30 primary-school-aged children, so book early.

Veggie Village president Bruce Molloy said the workshops aimed to give kids a better understanding of nature, permaculture and the connection to their food sources.

"The aim is to increase young children's awareness of nature by growing and eating fresh organic food and through games and interaction at the permaculture gardens,'' Mr Molloy said.

"All primary school children -5 to 12 year olds- are invited.

"Parents and carers will be encouraged to enjoy the facilities of Veggie Village and to interact with other members while the children's workshops are being conducted.

Cost is $5 per child.

Bookings essential - limited numbers. Phone Leonie 5474 5892 or Bruce 5448 3769

All children need to bring water, hat, healthy morning tea, sunscreen and wear closed shoes.

Veggie Village is located at Di Hurst Oval at Peregian, behind the Peregian Beach Bowls Club.
