Good conditions and months of input from parents and friends have seen the new garden grow strongly over summer and students are now enjoying the results.
Through daily routines like recycling food scraps and plant care the children have been taught about gardening, responsibility, and how to grow delicious food.
A worm farm was installed on-site to feed the plants.
The installation of the garden was funded through a Baw Baw Shire Council Community Development Grant.
