Watch this entertaining video and prepare to be inspired!
The Recycled Discovery Garden showcases a fun new approach to educating about sustainability at Wollongong Botanic Garden, especially for young visitors. This garden features quirky growing containers, such as used furniture, old bird cages and car tyres. The aim of the garden is to inspire children to get up close and engage with the flowers and edible plants. It gives them some understanding of where food comes from.
