The Australian Garden Show Sydney (4 to 7 September 2014) is set to become not only a memorable occasion for adults, but a fun and hands-on entertaining opportunity for kids.
This year there will be a new feature at the Garden Show – aMaze, an exploratory garden area created just for kids. Children have an instinctive affinity with nature and the growing world – worms, bugs, flower petals, smells and the feeling of dirt on skin entrance them.
aMaze is an environment where children can explore the growing world. It has been curated to introduce children to the beauty, wonder and dirt of gardening.
aMaze is a free gardening zone made just for the kids
Each activity allows children to experience the interconnectedness of nature and allows them to be part of the natural cycle of life and growth and decomposition and learn how each of these things are interdependent.
In addition, there will be children’s yoga, musical performances, a raw vegetable demonstration, and much more.
The centrepiece of aMaze is the no-dig garden spiral which will be developed over the four days with groups adding new sections of the spiral and helping to create a mosaic serpent that runs through the spiral.
All aMaze activities are free for children and are focused on building a strong connection with the cycle of life – where food comes from, how to grow it, how to eat it, fresh and unprocessed and how the leftovers go back to the earth to grow more food.
The area will have assistance by experienced adults, who will help direct and monitor activities so children have a great experience. Children need to be under the care of an adult at all times.
Remember – kids under 15 go free!
As a great offer this year, kids under 15 years of age go free with a ticket-paying adult. A great bonus!
And of course, the ticket offer for adults!
From now until 31 August 2014, if you buy your tickets online, use the promo code: “CentPark” to receive $10 off a regular adult ticket (some Ticketek fees and charges will still apply).
