Lithgow Families ‘Get Grubby’ for Free
Designed for 3–10 year old’s and their families, this program helps the whole family grow together at home. Subscribers will receive a monthly bumper email from dirtgirl jam-packed with activities, music, printables and exclusive resources to help families grow a family garden, make compost and cook the harvest, along with recycling fun, sustainable DIY, nature play and getting grubby outdoors.
Thanks to funding from the Bushfire Community Resilience and Recovery Fund * Lithgow City Council is gifting the subscription to all families within the Lithgow LGA for free.
“There’s no doubt that the past year has been tough for families,” says Mayor Ray Thompson. “This free subscription is one of the ways that Lithgow City Council is continuing to support our local community.”
Creator Cate McQuillen says the Get Grubby for Families program is all about learning and growing together as a community. “For the past 10 years, dirtgirlworld has been proud leaders in sustainability education and we are so proud to be able to bring this world directly into homes to inspire families through this huge time of change,” says Cate.
“Throughout the COVID-19 crisis we’ve witnessed a huge resurgence of interest in sustainable living and growing food,” says Cate. “There’s never been a more important time to support families on this path.”
“It’s no secret that dirtgirlworld is the happiest place on the planet – part of our job is to help children feel secure and safe in their world again. At the heart of it, we’re all about growing a positive and resilient future together.”
All families that reside in the Lithgow LGA are eligible to access the program for free. To sign up to the Get Grubby for Families program Council's websiteor visit
