Dr. Seuss' 'The Lorax' Kids Movie Session

Come along and join in the school holiday fun watching Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, and see why he really is the original force of nature! The Lorax helps speak up for the Truffula Trees, the Brown Bar-ba-loots and the Humming-Fish which are all being cut down and destroyed by the Once-ler. Learn why it is important for us to make sure that we keep enough trees and respect nature as it doesn’t have a voice for itself.

Small garden specialist and author of the best-selling books ‘The Edible Balcony’ and ‘The Edible City’, Indira Naidoo, is coming to Lane Cove to show you how to start your own veggie patch. No space is too small; no gardener too inexperienced.

Indira grew 70 kilograms of produce on her 13th floor, 20 square metre balcony and so can you.
