“Encouraging little hands in the garden
by bringing out the little gardener for your
next event or Shopping Centre promotion”
What is it?
The Veggie Patch Program is a hands on gardening experience for children aged 2 and upwards.
We have designed a range of purpose- built gardening stations that are targeted for either indoor or outdoor use. These structures are in forms of both trailers and tables with a variety of sizes to choose from. You can design your perfect event around our functional and educational platforms.
“The fully staffed gardening stations allow children to comfortably
plant their own seedling to take home and care for.”
Why what we do is important
Studies have indicated Australian children have inadequate intake of fruit and vegetables, leading to obesity and related health problems.
By providing hands on experience of growing food and a sense of ownership of the process, the Vegie Patch Program is a fantastic way to excite children about nutrition and help overcome some of the social factors affecting children’s consumption of fruit and vegetables.
Who is it for?
The Veggie Patch Program can cater from ages 2 and upwards.
We have also found this activation quite popular with adults of all ages and can cater for that too.
Coming from an early education background, we understand the importance of minimal mess.
The design of the Gardening stations helps contain any mess to the bench rather than the floor.
We are also prepared for any spills of soil that may occur during this process.
After planting, the children are provided with a paper carry bag to ensure the plant stays safe for the trip home. The participants will also have access to hand wipes if required.
For indoor activations flooring is recommended. Often this is provided by the Shopping Centre, although we are happy to help with this if needed.
