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.
To support children’s understanding of healthy eating, sustainability and plant growth, Gowrie Victoria Broadmeadows Valley in Victoria set about creating new vegetable garden beds all children in their service could be involved in.
City Beach Primary School’s ‘Healthy Hearts, Bodies and Minds’ project set about reviving the school’s existing garden space and involved students in sustainable practices to grow herbs, fruits, vegetables and bush tucker to create an inviting, multi-sensory garden the whole school community can now enjoy.
As part of the Food & Fibre curriculum, Sprent Primary School used their Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant to regenerate vegetable garden beds that complement the school farm.
