After a busy bee at our girls primary school on Saturday, the students were all set to meet today for their first Garden Club session. Along with implementing a gardening program at the school, the brilliant mum helming this ship has come up with some fantastic recycled art installations that has the kids and me very excited. The first crop to be planted has yet to be decided, however there is a plethora of upcycled ideas to keep the kids busy - forever.
Hub caps, fan grates and salad spinners were sprayed in bright colours.
Cellophane, Caution tape and pink and red plastic ribbon were laced around each painted face to create big bright flowers.
Secured to the fence with cable ties, these waterproof burst of upcycled joy have everyone pumped for the next project.
Having spent the day with this clever lady who can look at a roll of Caution tape and see a sunflower (yes Helen, I'm talking about you) I am truly inspired. I have so many projects I want to get started right now in our own garden. After a day in the sun I am pooped. Brilliant day. Thanks Helen.
