City Makers returns to the MET this September School Holidays

Popular children’s program City Makers returns to The Metropolitan in the heart of the new Maroochydore City Centre from 27-29 September these school holidays.

The event will be hosted in partnership with the award winning Wildlings Forest School where children will be tasked to ‘build their own city’ from loose parts, cardboard and recycled construction materials and learn new skills along the way.

The September school program will also include Living Smart special guests Robyn Cook (the Kitchen Garden Teacher) and Blake Schimek (Akuna Veggie Gardens) who will be planting out the new Kitchen Garden at the MET precinct.

SunCentral City Activation Project Manager Bronwyn Adams said big and small children can get their hands dirty layering, planting and mulching the garden, making their own placemats out of natural fibres and learning seasonal planting tips.

“This flagship program for the City Centre has been wildly popular with families who love the opportunity for kids to be creative and explore concepts and skills around design and construction in an immersive and supportive environment. Having the kitchen garden being built during our Spring holiday workshops is a perfect and timely addition to the program.

“This is a great opportunity for people on the Sunshine Coast to bring the family down and have a look at the progress being made within the Maroochydore CBD.. The first wave of residents have moved into the apartments in Market Lane recently and it will be a nice opportunity for families who are making the new CBD their home to have something right on their doorstep for kids to do this holidays,” Bronwyn said.

The container café on the MET site, run by local roasters, The Colombian Coffee Co will be open serving food and great caffeine each morning.

Bookings are $5 and essential due to the strong popularity of the City Makers project.

Dates –  Tuesday 27, Wednesday 28, Thursday 29 September

Time – 9.30am to 11.30am

City Makers is hosted in partnership with Wildlings Forest School and The MET.
