panorama: (noun) vision in all directions

This week, Port Phillip EcoCentre is hosting eco-savvy school holiday workshops for the whole family. Lively sessions will send you home with a project in hand and heaps of inspiration.

Each weekday features a different hands-on activity, from sprout farming to eco-friendly graffiti, with lessons and games linking environmental and creativity themes. The sessions are recommended for ages 4-12, with wee siblings welcome and adult accompaniment required – we’ll tempt you to join in the fun.

1 July – Plantable Pots ($10)

2 July – DIY Weather Station ($10)

5 July – Build an Eco-City ($10)

6 July – Eco-Graffiti I ($15)

7 July – Eco-Graffiti II ($15) (take independently or in addition to the first session)

8 July – Felt Making ($15)

9 July – Flower Presses and Printmaking ($15)

No booking necessary! Register on the day. Sessions run approximately one hour, at 10 am, 11 am, 12 noon, and 1 pm. Cost is per child. All materials provided.

The EcoCentre is in the St Kilda Botanic Gardens on the corner of Herbert and Blessington Street, St Kilda 3182. (MEL 58 B11) We’re a short walk from the 96 or 16 trams, close to Balaclava train station, and we have bike parking. For more info, call the EcoCentre on (03) 9534 0670 or email April at
