Stuck at home? It’s important to stay safe indoors as the outbreak of Covid-19 continues, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a good time. The West Village at West End launched a series of online events, perfect for those who want to gain new skills and knowledge, right in the comforts of their home. These activities are not just for individuals but also for the whole family!
West Village Gardener
Spring is just around the corner, which means it’s the perfect time to plant herbs and vegetables. A resident gardener will give you tips on the best plants to have in your garden as well as advice on how to maintain them. Some of the topics you will learn through the Gardener Online include propagating, regrowing veggies, and caring for citrus trees.
Kids in the Kitchen
Do your kids enjoy helping in the kitchen? Chefs Matt Golinski and Alastair McLeod have put together some easy-to-make recipes that are uploaded every Thursday for the Kids in the Kitchen online series at West Village. Let your little ones learn how to make sushi and other easy to follow recipes such as crunchy cauliflower bites, smoked ham, leek and brie quiche, and coconut yoghurt pannacotta.
West Village has partnered with Bee One Third to provide bee workshops, facts, and crafts, and even tips on how to cook with honey. There are a lot you can learn from the Village Bees, from amazing honey-inspired sweet and savoury recipes to attracting bees and butterflies to your garden.
Crafts for Kids
West Village offers free kids craft from 9:00 a.m. Monday to Friday with Creative Kids Brisbane. But those who can’t drop by can visit West Village’s Facebook page where step-by-step instructions are also uploaded.
