On Saturday, I took our two youngest girls to the Glengarry Cottage Gala Day.
They had talks and tours running throughout the day on stuff like permaculture gardening, composting, worm farming, etc. There were also some stalls, selling/displaying things like compost bins, worm farms, bags of compost, seedlings, etc. Sustainable Illawarra had a stall there as well.
We arrived a little later in the day, and I was disappointed to see there weren’t many people around. I was hoping there’d be more people interested. Then again, I only knew about the day because of our involvement in Sustainable Illawarra, so perhaps the promotion of the event was a bit too low-key.
Anyway, the girls enjoyed the afternoon. We did a photo treasure hunt, watched (and got involved in!) a play, wandered around the garden with magnifying glasses, and did some craft. Pretty much a perfect couple of hours from their point of view!
