Kids garden in the roads

Kids harvesting tucker from road gardens

Last week some 5 and 6 year old kids from a local child care centre came a-gardening with me and their parents and carers in Chippendale’s streets. They harvested lemon grass, nasturtium flowers and leaves, lemon tea tree, bay leaves, caffre lime leaves and, more than that, some ancient connections with food.


Marie, child care cook, using public compost bins

The cook at the child care centre walks with the kids from the centre to public compost bins.  The kids carry vegie scraps from the child care kitchen and together they put the scraps into our compost bins in the Pine Street Creative Arts Centre grounds.

Great initiative Pine street child care – beaut to share our road gardens with you and thanks for all you’re doing, Go the kids, M
