Little Apple Tree is a family-owned Child Care Centre nestled among the gums in Gold Coast’s famously green hinterland. 

Owner and Director Sascha Valewink created a beautiful Meadow Flower garden at Little Apple Tree’s entrance. This offered the children an opportunity to watch the flowers grow, pick them when they bloomed, and immerse themselves in nature right at the front door.

“At Little Apple Tree we have an environment which enables the children to be truly in nature and connect with nature every day they come to kindy,” Sascha says. 

“This is why we chose Meadow Flowers’s beautiful Honey Bee & Butterfly Mix to greet the Children and families as they entered and left each day. 

This article discusses the trend away from nature in our current lives and the window of opportunity that exists for children to make connections at an early age.”

“Not only was the mix of wildflowers beautiful but easy to plant and grow by following the Meadow Flowers How to Sow guide,” Sascha says. “My husband and I did it all one Saturday”. 

“Over winter is a perfect time to get the ground prepared and ready for planting in Spring. 

“Next time we plant seeds like these I would like to involve the children to create a deeper learning experience.”
