One Tree Per Child

Founded by Jon Dee and Olivia Newton-John, ‘One Tree Per Child’ works with schools, councils, local tree planting groups and community organisations. Their aim is to get millions of children planting millions of trees!

Our community garden was lucky enough to receive a tree following the group’s Queensland launch at Lota State School.

Children’s Activity Morning

We recently hosted a Children’s Activity Morning at our community garden, for primary school aged children during the school holidays, thanks to some wonderful local volunteers who gave their time and shared their talents.

Children were invited to experiment with watercolour art, using colourful flowers from our garden as inspiration.

They also got to make a mini terrarium to take home, do a scavenger hunt and experiment with clay body painting.

We were also treated to some wonderful music and the children were able to have a turn at playing the instruments too!

It was a wonderful, relaxed morning and we hope that we have inspired our local school children to be part of our beautiful community garden.
