Kids love bugs! And our collection of 14 ecosystem information boards are a wonderful introduction to common insects and reptiles found in Australian backyards and how they help our gardens to grow. Each board is engraved, using NSW Foundation Font, with details of the insects name, where they live, what they eat and an interesting fact about them. The beautiful images are printed on the outer side of the perspex, giving them a unique 3D effect. Timber stands are also included in the set, so you can have them sitting up on display or explore them on a lightbox.
Why not take them out into the garden to help discover the real thing! Using these boards is a great way to teach children about a gardens’ ecosystem – how a community of plants, animals and smaller organisms live, feed, reproduce and interact in the same area.
Full set includes 4 x timber stands (will hold 8 boards)
These boards come in their own organza drawstring bag.
Made using 3 mm plywood and 3 mm perspex, this is an all Australian Made And Owned product.
Another addition to our Australian themed puzzles, these sweet colour-coded 4 piece puzzles feature 8 native plants and their name. Australia is home to over 24,000 species of plants, most of which are unique to our continent. The trees, bushes and wildflowers we have selected are some of our most well known and you may even have more than one in your backyard.
This puzzle comes in its own organza drawstring bag.
This is an all Australian Made And Owned product using sustainable timber.
Every piece of wood used is slightly different in colour, texture and grain. The naturally occurring imperfections seen in the timber (e.g knots, colour changes, etc) cannot be removed. These pieces of timber are cut on an engraver and will have slight burnt marks on the edges on some sides
Before the colonisation of Australia, Aboriginal Australians lived on a wonderful larder of fresh fruit, vegetables and lean meat, in a land largely free from disease, with more exercise, less stress and supportive communities.
Today, in Aboriginal communities all over Australia, there are higher instances of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, renal disease, some types of cancer and lung diseases than in the general population.
This book is an attempt to preserve bush tucker knowledge for future generations of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people to ensure the information is not lost with the passing of Elders.
The authors describe over 260 species of the edible plants and fungi that were regularly gathered by the Noongars of the Bibbulmun Nation of the south-west of Western Australia before and after colonisation. Many of these plants and fungi are difficult to find today because of land clearing for crops and the farming of sheep and cattle.
