Event-Location: 

Birdsland Environmental Education Centre, 271 Mt. Morton Road, Belgrave Heights

Come along to our relaxed Sunday session of nature play.

Aimed at families with young children, this Southern Dandenong’s Landcare Group project offers nature-based activities and play with a strong focus on caring for our environment through tending Birdland’s very own community vegetable patch and bush garden.

 Parents and children will take part in:

  • Developing and caring for the community bush garden and vegetable patch, sharing seeds and plants, sowing crops and enjoying the bounty that this brings.
  • Nature walks within the Birdsland Reserve setting
  • Nature-based art experiences in and around the off-grid education centre, which also has a fully functioning kitchen for cooking activities
  • Socializing with other families in the community, sharing ideas and everyday sustainable practices around the home
  • Guest speakers and visitors from organizations and community members in the hills with a focus on sustainable living and protecting our natural environment.

The project runs on the first Sunday of the month (10 am-1 pm) and the third Thursday of the month (1 pm-4 pm), with ongoing participation via SDLG membership.
