Digging into holiday fun
Young green-thumbs will have their school-holiday creations entered in Horsham Show in September.
Uniting Wimmera partnered with Horsham Agricultural Society to offer children the chance to ‘put their creativity to work’ at a free school-holiday activity at Horsham’s Maydale Pavilion.
Uniting Wimmera project worker Tami Lane said 30 children made mini succulent gardens, woollen pom-poms, decorated plates and wooden spoons.
She said the creations would become entries in a children’s competition section at Horsham Show.
“The workshop was designed as a school-holiday activity for families to participate in together,” she said.
“Horsham Agricultural Society allowed families to use the GJ Gardner Homes Community Garden to source succulents for the activity.”
