Council provides a range of support activities to local schools including:
In school workshops
- No-dig vegetable gardening - Let’s build a vegetable garden using the no- dig method where we layer up all the ingredients in lasagne layers. We then plant out the garden in groups called guilds so the plants grow happy and healthy.
- Find out more on our Grow Your Own Food page.
- Native Plants: Bush foods and habitat gardens - Local native plants grow strong and healthy on our local soils and require minimal maintenance. In this workshop we work with the students to plant out a variety of local bush food and medicine plants and OR plants to provide homes and food for local birds and insects.
- Find out more on our Grow an Indigenous Garden page.
- Worm farming & composting - learn how to manage food waste by feeding the worms. Find out what worms do and don’t like to eat and how to get you compost working well by balancing out carbon and nitrogen with different ingredients.
- Find out more on our Worm Farming page or our Composting page.
- Waste audits - The first step to reducing your schools waste is to do an audit of what types of waste and how much is being produced at your school. We can then look and a variety of options and alternatives to reduce the waste that goes to landfill.
