At Bendigo Violet Street Primary School, students and teachers have been working hard to improve their
gardening skills, and develop the current garden space. Every day, classes tend to different areas that they have committed to focus on and improve throughout the year. Sarah, our gardening teacher and plant expert, works hard every day, and is very passionate about ensuring that we all contribute to this fantastic space.
In the garden we have a variety of different plants and vegetables that we care for. We harvest them and sometimes replant them so we can keep the cycle repeating. Each year we are able to benefit from the fruits of our labour by using the fresh produce to make salads and other delicious foods, when in season, students are also able to take home fresh fruit and vegetables to share with their families. We are working towards becoming sustainable so all of our weeds go to our chickens so that none of the scraps to go to waste.
