A dedicated learning experience has been created for children of all ages.
Children around Australia are learning about gardening in schools, at home, in community gardens and at events like this.
Kids love gardening – growing flowers and food, playing with earthworms and chickens, learning about nature, creating fantasy spaces in the garden and playing games.
Kids Zone 2019 is a place where children can expand their knowledge and imagination in the garden.
Note: Children must have an accompanying adult with them at all times while at the Brisbane Garden & Plant Expo.
Little Green Thumbs will be providing children with the opportunity to plant their very own tomato seedling. This is done at the purpose built Little Green Thumbs trailer.
All seedlings are planted into a biodegradable pots ready to be transplanted into the home garden.
This experience is a wonderful introduction to the wonders of nature and the benefits of healthy eating through hands on learning.
