Local families are being encouraged to sign up to a free program designed to teach them about environmental sustainability.
Council has signed up to the Get Grubby program, which teaches kids about the importance of recycling, composting and gardening.
Get Grubby is aligned with the popular ABC Kids TV show of the same name.
Designed for three to 10-year old's and their families, the program is delivered through a monthly email from dirtgirl.
The e-mails will be jam-packed with activities, music, printables and exclusive resources to help families grow a family garden, make compost and cook the harvest, along with recycling fun, sustainable DIY, nature play and getting grubby outdoors.
Council's Waste Resources Officer, Louise Hoade, said the program will inspire children to go outside to explore and celebrate nature.
"There are 10 units in the program and most of them coincide with world and national events such as World Environment Day and National Recycling Week," she said.
"There's lots of activities to choose from on each topic including games, crafts, quizzes, music and drama."
Council's subscription makes the program available for free to local families.
