Latham Pre-School’s Garden project set about establishing two garden types – seasonal vegetables and native/bush tucker – so that students can learn about where their food comes from and develop knowledge about Indigenous plants and food practices.
Thanks to their new Bush Tucker Garden, 580 students at Telopea Park School have been able to enjoy a garden space that reflects the Ngunnawal people’s connections to the land where the students learn and play.
Supported by their Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant, students at Norton Summit Primary School were able to create a sustainable native garden on a hillside leading down to the school’s nature playground.
Avoca Primary School’s ‘Kids Garden: designed by kids for kids’ project set out to establish a new garden in the school grounds where children could not only learn how to grow plants and food and create animal habitats, but also learn more about themselves.
Thanks to their Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant, 51 students at Hamilton (Gray Street) Primary School were able get hands-on learning about birds in their local environment, and how to care for them by creating their own bird habitat.
