The learning activities help to build knowledge and deeper connections to…
Learning about local ecosystems including plants, animals and soil; creating habitat for local plants and animals by planting local species, installing nest boxes or creating a fog bog, planting trees and shrubs and managing weeds.
Learning about plant lifecycles; understanding where our food comes from; creating vegetable, herb and bush tucker gardens.
First Nations Perspectives
Learning about Indigenous seasons; traditional land management techniques and cultural heritage.
Learning how to set up and manage compost systems and worm farms; or implementing the 4 R’s – Refusing, Reducing, Reusing, Recycling.
Just for Kids
The Just for Kids activities have been developed to help children at home and at school explore Junior Landcare and create their own ideas.
The activity sheets are based on the activities in the Junior Landcare Learning Centre, and focus on four key areas: food production, biodiversity, waste management and indigenous perspectives.
