Gardening Club

Garden Club is an initiative that aims to introduce kids to the pleasure of growing their own food while learning about soil cultivation and composting. We focus on seasonal vegetables and herbs with an emphasis on companion planting.
Students are actively involved in planting, caring for and harvesting produce in the raised garden beds, looking after plants in the school grounds and gathering lunch scraps for the compost bins. 

The Garden Club is a real community initiative which aims to promote sustainable practice, using our dedicated water tank, recycling food scraps and using supplies donated, recycled or bought with money from our fundraisers.  It is a great way for the school community to connect and engage with our students.
