Is your veggie patch looking a little forlorn or maybe you’re still feeling the effects of the lockdown blues?

Moreton Bay Regional Council’s latest Healthy & Active Moreton program may have the answer for you.

Mayor Peter Flannery said the program of free or low-cost activities was a great opportunity for residents to try something new and get active across our region.

“Getting out and exploring the great outdoors is a focus of the program with guided bushwalking tours, as well as bushwalking skills workshops to teach you how to be self-sufficient in the Australian bush,” Mayor Flannery said.

“We’re blessed to be surrounded by so many walking and cycling trails in our region, and with all of us enduring lockdowns over the past few months what better way to stretch the legs than exploring the wonders in our backyard.

“In our actual backyards, I think nearly everyone had a go at growing a veggie patch over the past year, but the harvests may not have been as bountiful as we all hoped!

“Join the ‘Learn to grow your own food’ workshops to improve your green thumb skills.

“If you’re after something with higher energy, there’s bootcamps and HIIT sessions to help whip you into shape coming out of winter.

“After being stuck indoors for so long, looking after your mental health is just as important as your physical health, so make sure you check out the mindfulness workshops for kids as well as yoga in the park classes to help you find your zen.

“There are activities all across the region, so head online and book into something new to finish 2021 on a higher note.”

The Healthy & Active Moreton program caters for all ages and abilities, running until 12 December 2021, with even more activities starting in October.

All Healthy & Active Moreton activities are being delivered safely and in accordance with the latest State Government regulations for COVID-19.
