12 Sep (Sat): Strange Plants for kids

Led by Cicada Tree Eco Place. Some plants can have very strange qualities. Some, like pitcher plants, eat up bugs. Others, like ant plants, feed bugs which care for them in return. And there are those which chase bugs away with the smell they emit. And of course, there are plants which have sweet leaves or shoots that are edible. In this lesson, kids will also see examples of useful plants like rattan from which we get baskets and furniture. The lesson will end with a walk in the garden to hunt for all sorts of strange plants.
For children 5 to 12 years.
