Dirtgirl World

Overview

The Dirtgirlworld website is based on the ABC television program of the same name that aims to educate children from the ages of 4 to 7 years about becoming active carers of the planet through social change, so that placing 'nature first is second nature'. Engaging on-line activities encourage children to connect with the environment through the creation of virtual organic vegetable gardens, (complete with compost, mulch and active water management) and watching video clips of children enjoying the outside world and participating in actions that promote sustainability.
