Warrandyte Road’s Community Garden Project

What started as a seed of an idea has now bloomed into a thriving community garden at Warrandyte Road Early Learning Centre. Several years ago, Centre Manager Janene Melchior had a plan to start a community garden at the front of their Doncaster East centre.

Each yoga session goes for around 20 – 30 minutes and 30 – 45 minutes for the children in the Kinder room. Read more
