Accessible School Holiday Program

'Virtual Garden' Design Workshop

In the winter school holidays, NeuroHero is running an accessible workshop for children with physical disabilities between the ages of 13-18.

Many school holiday programs are partly or completely inaccessible to physical disabilities, we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to be involved. Because of this, we take an accessible approach, to allow your child to relax, learn and have fun without worrying about being included. The workshop is priced at $35 to cover the costs of seedlings and soil and will run from 10:30am to 3:30pm on the 16th of July.

What the workshop includes:

  • Learn about where your food comes from in a 360° virtual experience of the University of Adelaide Waite campus

  • Use Minecraft to design a small veggie garden

  • See your designs come to life after the workshop at our Waite campus garden plot

  • Watch your garden grow with progress updates and keep the goodies the garden produces!

Spaces are limited, so get in quick! To register click here or use the form below.
