Pixie fun for school holidays

By Rebecca Peppiatt

With the school holidays looming, Glen Forrest Community Garden is offering parents an opportunity to get the kids outside and into nature.

Pixies in the Patch is a regular monthly event for toddlers at the garden on Hardey Road, but on October 7, 10am to 12pm, the event is open to older kids as organisers bring in craft activities and visiting farm animals.

“Pixies in the Patch provides children the opportunity to explore themselves plus connect with family, community, culture and place,” said organiser Ash-Lee Parkin.

“This is all done in the rich sensory environment that nature provides.”

Pixies in the Patch began three years ago as a way to expose younger families to the community garden.

The school holiday event will offer flat bread making, tractor painting and sheep craft, as well as the opportunity to cuddle goats, donkeys, ponies, cows and more.

There is an entry fee and proceeds are donated to the Glen Forrest Community Garden.
