Little Planeteers Environmental Club – Re Growing Vegetables!
Thursday 18th August, 4pm – 5pm
Bunjil Place Library

Meeting each month, Little Planeteers Environmental Club is a fun way for kids to learn about big environmental issues and how they can make a difference to the planet. Each month we look at a different environmental challenge through fun hands-on activities with a focus on ways kids can reduce, reuse and recycle at home and in their daily lives.

In August it’s almost Springtime, this month we look at growing vegetables from their seeds and stems. See which vegetables from the supermarket you can grow and grow again. Take home a sprout seed science experiment to watch how seeds grow into plants.

Ages 6 -10
