The Creative Cubby Project is back!

Our fabulous Creative Cubby Project which teaches kids more about sustainability and design while making eco-cubbies out of recycled materials, is back! We will be at the Ballarat Begonia Festival THIS Weekend (Sat 7th – Mon 9th March)!

For those who don’t know, Ballarat Begonia Festival was the 2014 winner of “Australia’s favourite event”! It is FREE with loads to see and do for all ages! On for three days over the Labour Day Long Weekend from 10am – 5pm each day.  For more details and full program of events, see here. You’ll find us in the Botanical Gardens on the main thoroughfare (the Prime Ministers Walk) diagonally opposite the main stage and adjacent to the food court. The Moroccan tea tent is across the way, and the enormous sandpit next to us….there’s SO much to see and do! Just a keep a look out for all the huge cardboard boxes on the lawn under the oak trees!




“Get creative and help build a giant cubby house using recycled boxes and re-used materials while learning about sustainability at home and in the garden. Run by a team of local artists and designers, the “In My Garden” activity is presented by the Creative Cubby Project.”

To see what we got up to last year at the Ballarat Show, check out some of the photos here! For this event, we are also using foraged natural materials to help build our cubby and garden. Look forward to seeing some of you there (with any little people you know) to get creative!
