Explore: Buds ‘n’ Blooms Nature Play Group – Piney Lakes

Looking for a fun outdoor activity suited to all ages and abilities? Join Buds n Blooms to get outside and connect with your community.

Buds n Blooms is an intergenerational nature play group that provides a community led, highly enriched, sensory and outdoor learning and play environment for all ages. The fortnightly program (Tuesdays 9.30am-11.30am), encourages children, older adults and other attendees to engage with the environment in a garden based setting, led by a skilled facilitator.

This program is suitable for all, aged 0-100! Our guided activities and workshops are structured and directed towards ages 0-7 but remain inclusive for all to participate and enjoy. There will be something different happening each time!

Do you know an older adult (neighbour, friend, relative) you could invite to Buds n Blooms? We would love to welcome them to our sessions! This term we are celebrating mental health, grandparents and seniors. Not all older adults have family or friends nearby, and loneliness and social isolation can have a big impact on physical and mental health.
