Spiders and sauerkraut, bee-keeping and bugs….the Peaks to Points Festival Family Day, presented by Brisbane MarketPlace features a host of free activities to help you and the kids get closer to nature.
Held at the Oxley Creek Common, Rocklea on Sunday 31 July from 10am to 4pm, the day offers all sorts of family activities to celebrate the environment.
Sustainability guru, Roman Spur will be hosting workshops on Wicked Wicking and Food Fermentation. In the Wicked Wicking workshop, Roman will create a wicking pot from up-cycled material. Children will take home a pot made from recycled materials and a plant. In the food fermentation workshop, Roman will demonstrate how to make and prepare sauerkraut, kombucha, kefir, yoghurt and cheese.
Young gardeners can also get their hands dirty with Little Green Thumbs, as they plant their own vegetable seedling and learn how to care for herbs and vegies. Each child takes home a seedling.
The Bugs Ed display is an interactive experience featuring amazing displays of insects, spiders and scorpions from around the world, plus live Australian insects.
Also check out the thrilling ExpressiveBikes Trials Show, displays of historic army jeeps, electric cars and farm animals from Corinda SHS. Enjoy the Bazil Grumble theatre presentation for children. Meet the members of local environment and community groups at the information stalls.
