Drawing on the healing properties of plants and flowers in the local environment, participants will come together to co-create a garden installation at USC Art Gallery.

You will with work with a trained Healing Gardener who will show you how to create some of the beautiful flowers of the Sunshine Coast. They will guide you through creating different types of petals, leaves and stems.

The session is also an opportunity to reflect on the natural environment, share stories, and experience the unique satisfaction of seeing your efforts combine to create a beautiful garden.

Due to COVID-19 bookings are essential. Children must be accompanied by an adult.


You can create some of the beautiful flowers of the Sunshine Coast using a few simple items. In the Amygdala—Healing Garden Education Resource you will find simple and easy to follow steps for creating different types of petals, leaves and stems, and ideas for how to make some of the flowers.
