Let the children captain the ship and get back in touch with nature as spring overtakes the city.
This weekend, Erin Earth's open day will give families the chance to learn all about birds, bats, bees and bugs.
Ben Holt, the education and publicity officer, recommended that parents let their children guide the way through the garden.
The theme for this season's open day is backyard biodiversity which includes birds, bats, bees and bugs.
"We are hoping to help people understand what is going on in their own backyard because they are amazing," Mr Holt said.
"There are lots of connections between the plants and the bugs and birds.
"Often, when we look in our yard, we see a plant that we like the colour of, but there is so much more to it."
Mr Holt said the theme ties in with National Biodiversity Month.
"The concept means to preserve the many different types of plants and animals," he said.
"It's not just to have lots of bees and no other insects, and we want lots of types because it makes an ecosystem resilient.
"For example, with climate change, our average temperature is increasing, so if we have biodiverse plants and animals, the local ecosystem will be able to cope better."
Mr Holt said the day is perfect for families and he loves seeing the "awestruck" look on children's faces as they explore the garden.
"Let your kids be the captain," he said.
"As an adult, when you let a kid do that, you will notice way more things than if you walked around yourself.
"Their sense of wonder goes via osmosis into you."
Mr Holt started working at Erin Earth in January and has loved every minute of it.
"It is such a unique place," he said.
"Our mission is to help people tread lightly on the earth and help people live sustainably."
Erin Earth's open day is this Saturday from 9am to 1pm with talks, café, BBQ and children's activities.
It's a gold coin donation for entry.
Erin Earth will also start to open every Friday from 5pm to 7pm once daylight savings starts as a place for people to unwind for the week.
