Fun and games: Jackson finds an extra use for the rubber gloves.

Twins: Izabella and Sapphire work in unison.

Helping hand: Shannon from Mitre 10 (far right) shows the Bluebird children how it's done.

The three-year-olds at Cobram Bluebird Kindergarten have been getting their hands dirty as part of their sustainability program.

Fifteen enthusiastic pre-schoolers had the chance to do some gardening at Mitre 10.

Dirt was flying everywhere as the children filled their pot plants, but they did not care one iota, revelling in the chance to get outside and have some fun.

Cobram Bluebird’s Kerry Vitullo said the early education group had implemented different activities for the children to enjoy to teach sustainability.

‘‘We are teaching sustainability and it’s all based on the children’s interests and what they enjoy and they have loved learning all about the different weeds, seeds and plants,’’ Mrs Vitullo said.

‘‘Shannon from Mitre 10 said we could come over here because it’s the only nursery and she set everything up for us, which was very kind of her and the kids have had a blast.’’

The children have also been looking after a hydroponic lab full of chickpeas and broad beans.

They will soon start working on a vegie garden.
