Permaulture school garden village – Children's Festival

It's been a few years since I've at Woodford but now I'm back with the biggest event yet.  We are building an Permakids school garden village in the childrens festival, every day our village will be expanding through growing food, building structures and creating habits for our much loved creatures plus lots more.  There is a team of 10 experience permie/children educators  and we are bringing lots of new ideas and workshops to Woodford this year.

Children's Festival

Since the festival’s humble beginnings in Maleny, we have held true to the belief in presenting a programme for children that they can jump into, roll around in, drink, breathe in and be covered in, with something that is inspiring, where they can have fun, learn something new and where giving and receiving is in equal measure.

Workshops, performances, arts and crafts, and most importantly play are here for the taking, whether boldly or shyly, loudly or quietly. Many of our festival children are now the young adults of the world and espouse, in part, those values and experiences that were part of theirs, and our, growing up. We will welcome you once again to turn the key and enter a wondrous world of imagination and play.
