Seasonal Sustainability Garden - Donburn Primary School (VIC)
Winners of a Yates & Junior Landcare Creative Garden Grant 2017!
Donburn Primary School (VIC)
Seasonal Sustainability Garden
The Sustainability Corner of the school now has a new Seasonal Sustainability Garden that connects the previously created Vegetable Garden and Sensory Gardens. The sustainability garden contains raised wicking-beds, with vegetables and a ramp to mitigate erosion issues and soil compaction. Students of each year level themed the beds according to the seven Wurundjeri Seasons. They installed messages promoting sustainability and a totem pole with the Wurundjeri creator spirit Bunjil painted on it. The project brought together the community resulting in the creation of a Garden Club formed by students, parents and volunteers.
“The seven Wurundjeri Seasons theme has enlightened our school community about the Wurundjeri culture.” – Julie Hoskin, School Principal
