Calling all Mount Victorians! Did you know that one of Wellington's most sustainable school holiday programmes takes place in your neighbourhood?

Based at Innermost Gardens, Wilderkids has something to suit children aged 5 to 12.

Here is a sneak peek of what we have in store these school holidays.

For the master chef: In the forest, they will find, treats and tracks, unlike any kind. Your master chef will go foraging for ingredients for snacks and tea.

For the artist: Why be a regular artist when you can be a WILD artist? Why be an art critic when you can be an art critter! Wilderkids gives the little artist in your life and opportunity to make and create art.

For the architect/builder: Let's face it. Kids LOVE building stuff. Whether it's a hut, a hideaway, a bug hotel or a firepit.. Wilderkids has all the bases covered.

For the explorer: Does your child remind you of Indiana Jones? Do they have a thirst for adventure, mystery, knowledge? Well, the entire Wilderkids programme is designed for them.

What are you waiting for?

Places are filling up fast! So get in quick.

Did you know that one mouthful in three is directly thanks to bee pollination? Bee Aware Month is a chance for us to learn about the incredible value bees bring to our lives and find out how we can help them!

Around the world is there is growing concern about the health of bees. The humble bee is threatened by disease, mites, pesticide use and habitat degradation.

But there are lots of things YOU can do to BEE AWARE during conservation week.

That's why we're running a workshop with a Wellington-based beekeeper - because the best way to learn is by asking questions!

And we have lots of question and lots to learn about humble bumblebees (well, all native bees.. but we couldn't resist a rhyme)

Come along and get a feel for the beekeeper experience.

We will even make sensational seed bombs for you to scatter in your back yard.

If you are looking for a professional picture framer in Wellington, give Jo from JW Framing a call.

We commissioned her to frame some of the photos from the photo comp we ran a few months back.

We chose her because she works with timber from old doors, floorboards, window frames and fences (whenever possible).

Jo is always on the hunt for timber, so if you have some lying around make sure you give her a call or drop her an email.
