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.
