Many children grow up with the four seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter, but for the local Boonwurrung people, six seasons take place each year. These seasons are determined by the movement of the stars and changes in the weather, coinciding with the life cycles of plants and wildlife.
Journey through the gardens with a First Nations guide and learn about the importance of diﬀerent seasons to the Boonwurrung people and the land. Gain an understanding of manameet (early winter) and the use of native plants during the season. Sow one of your very own seasonal foods to take home along with a recipe.
