20 x 15’

Gardening Australia Junior is a 20 x 15’ series starring keen junior gardeners who tackle a fun new project each episode.

From constructing a compost cauldron to building a bee hotel and growing a rainbow veggie patch, there’s plenty on offer for viewers to replicate at home.

Making it as relatable as possible, Gardening Australia Junior covers all manner of gardens, from the luxurious open country to the smallest balcony gardens – wherever something grows.

The series also includes a vital First Nations voice through a collaboration with Aboriginal-led horticultural organisation Wildflower, and Cudgenburra/Bunjalung man Clarence Slockee. Clarence leads the young green thumbs in a Native Garden segment.

Across the series, Gardening Australia Junior aims to inspire kids and families to roll up their sleeves and get out into the beauty and hard work of the garden.

Original music for the program is composed by Lachlan Nicholson, led by music consultant Joff Bush – who also makes music for hit series Bluey!
