Our Treasure Hunt at the Lilydale and Yarra Valley Show
We had a great weekend at the Show with our Poster Exhibition and Treasure Hunt. The treasure hunt took families to 5 stalls that are a part of our food system. We had 71 entries with an amazing 70 that were completed in full. Families visited the Lilydale Community Garden stall; the cookery display to find a cake with a vegetable as the main ingredient; the honey display to find out about bees; the scarecrow exhibition and then to our stall find a fruit or vegetable that is grown in the Yarra Ranges. Then, the hunt asked for a ‘pinky promise’ to try a new vegetable during the week. From mushrooms and bean sprouts to turnips and Brussels sprouts, hopefully lots children are trying a new vegetable this week. Every entry won a pack of seeds and went into the draw for the main prize of a gardening kit.
Prizes were donated by our partners. Our work is funded by the Victorian State Government and this specific project was partly funded by a VicHealth Jumpstart grant.
