Thanks to the commitment of the Beachmere State School community, the school garden is greening up.
With the backing of fund raising efforts of the P&C, the children, teachers and volunteers have worked hard to makeover the patch and within the space of a few weeks new beds are in production, seedlings planted out and lots of goodies are popping their green heads out of the soil.
In the mix, the passion and enthusiasm is infectious and the veg patch is a keen hub for all things horticultural five days a week.
Coming soon: a chook pen. Vertical gardens...
As gardening and related topics is incorporated more into the school program the garden will function even more effectively as a key learning experience while also serving as a integral connection between the wider community and its school.
Anyone interested in volunteering as part of this partnership can email Dave Riley on firstname.lastname@example.org .
