These school holidays, we’re celebrating the little ones with two weeks packed with activities to keep their growing minds entertained and wowed.
We’re bringing back our Green Thumbs workshop with resident horticulturalist, Greg, who will be teaching your little ones all about fresh produce and how to plant their own mini gardens. We’re also introducing a new workshop from our friends at Maya Sunny Honey where kids can learn all about beets and how to extract honeycomb to make their own honey to take home. We’re also bringing back Pizza Making in the garden, Cupcake & Cookie decorating and Bricks 4 Kids lego workshops throughout the two weeks.
