Seaview Downs Primary School Sustainable Garden
Students and teachers from Seaview Downs Primary School developed multiple green learning areas within the sustainable garden, including a fruit tree orchard, a plant propagation area, an outdoor classroom and a native garden. Students’ parents and Friends of O'Halloran Hill helped to install an efficient irrigation system, to plant natives and to install a native bee hotel and a composting area. Among other benefits of the project, the School’s Garden Club became accessible to more students and was expanded by the incorporation of new gardening, harvesting, composting, recycling and cooking lessons.
“The Sustainable Garden is a significant addition to the curriculum connections we make with our Healthy Eating Canteen service and the nutrition & sustainability learning units in classrooms”
