With the help of Logan City Council, Loganholme resident Areta Farrance has expanded her outdoor teaching environment.

Ms Farrance operates Bush Kindy Teaching, bringing immersive play-based activities to the city’s local bushland and green spaces.

She has delivered bush kindy programs over the past 20 years including through the Kingston East Neighbourhood Group (KENG).

After receiving Community Development funding from Council, Ms Farrance launched new programs last year to meet community demand.

“In recent years there has been continuous requests from the community for more activities,” Ms Farrance said.

“Thanks to the Council funding I started a new group at the Daisy Hill Conservation Park in partnership with local Indigenous artist Sally Terare and it operates each Tuesday during school terms.

“The Community Grants program allows you to be supported as you take the next step to pursue your passion.”

Lifestyle Chair Councillor Tony Hall said Council was pleased to deliver a range of community grant programs.

“Ms Farrance is a local community champion with a big heart and is doing some great work with local families,” Cr Hall said.

“I encourage anyone with a big idea that will support the local community to consider applying for Community Development funding.”

Up to $10,000 is available for not-for profit organisations, schools, and social enterprises per application all year round.

The next funding round closes on Tuesday, February 27.
