Get Grubby Program


The City of Ryde has signed up to the ‘get grubby’ program, an online sustainability curriculum for everyone in our City wanting to learn about Waste, Recycling and Sustainability.  

It usually requires a paid subscription for access, but the exciting news is that it is now free for anyone living or working in the City of Ryde with a valid City of Ryde residential or business address. As part of our commitment to sustainability education, we have covered all the costs for you to participate.

The program contains 10 sustainability units, covering topics such as:

  • recycling
  • composting
  • worm farming
  • saving water
  • growing food
  • getting grubby!

The units have been matched to the National Quality Standards and the Belonging, Being & Becoming Early Years Learning Framework, and packed them with heaps of dirtgirlworld fun!

Each unit contains special videos from dirtgirl, scrapboy, and Costa the Garden Gnome, great songs to sing and dance to, heaps of activities, fun games and loads of hands on ideas for you and your community of children.

To register for this amazing online curriculum, simply email Robyn Kelly on and she will be in touch with log in details.
