Federal Community Children’s Centre is holding a Connecting to Country day to celebrate Aboriginal culture and respect for the environment on Sunday June 25 over 10am–2pm.
It will feature a program by a local Widjabul elder and Aboriginal artists across dance, song, story and visual arts; Uncle Gilbert Laurie will be holding a yarning circle throughout the day for children and parents to learn more about the dreaming stories of the area.
A highlight of the childcare centre is the bush-tucker living classroom that was made in 2014.
It is created with local bush tucker from the area, and you will be able to take a tour around the garden and learn to identify some native plants.
There will also be workshops on how to make a living cubby, natural silk dyeing and weaving workshops.
