Get your hands dirty as you learn how to build a self-feeding vegetable bed called the “Worm Lasagne” that brings minerals, life and vegetables into your garden.

 

Our Worm Lasagne method is energy efficient, blocks weeds and generates healthy organic produce. Then we will mix up a batch of “Magic Potion” that will enchant your soil with E.L.F energy and paramagnetic powers! Take it home and watch your garden grow!

PLEASE NOTE: As a hands-on activity, and for maximum learning ability, numbers are capped for this session so BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL.

Parent attendance is welcome, but not mandatory. Ticket price includes take home Magic Potion.

With a restriction on numbers, reserve your child’s place quickly.

About the Presenters

The Living Classroom Project is an outdoor learning program that has been functioning for over 17 years in schools across NSW and Queensland. Using experiential, hands-on learning, the programs are tailored to primary and secondary school students, introducing them to the principles and practices of permaculture design, to build and plant organic vegetable gardens, at both home and school.

Living Classroom is different from other gardening programs in that we create seating circles, bed designs, 4 seasons vegetable gardens tied in with water harvesting via swales, food forestry to improve micro-climate of playgrounds, and cafeteria composting – lunch to soil.

All teachers have degrees in Education, the Principal is a qualified landscape architect, and 2 of the educators are PDC qualified.

The principles demonstrated in all Living Classroom programs support disaster prevention and crisis management.
