Veggie Garden Take 2

After the huge success of our first veggie garden, courtesy of the Northern Sydney Health Promoting Schools Seeding Grant, a second garden has been constructed and is ready to be installed.

Last year Stage 2 students tended the garden and harvested the produce, using most of the fresh veggies in Special Interest Groups cooking lessons or taking them down to the canteen to be used in lunches. Students were able to expand their tastes by trying fresh shredded beetroot, radishes, lettuce, tomato as well as some carrots. All agreed fresh is best!

Now we're ready to expand and include other grades in the project with the formation of a gardening club. Watch out for information about activities in the following weeks.


A very big thank you to the Murphy family for all their time and hard work.
