Garden Glory at Enviro Working Bee

Last Sunday, the Friends of the Enviro Garden held its first Community Working Bee for the year. A total of 73 parents, students, grandparents, staff, and friends combined to complete an astounding array of tasks.

Garden beds were re-sited, weeds were weeded, areas were landscaped and mulched, cubbies were cleansed and the annoying fine wire mesh was painstakingly removed from the chook pen. More than this, new bonds were established and parents gained a better understanding of their children’s work and learning spaces. The new connections that were forged have the potential to last a lifetime!

We thank all involved for their time and effort, and for helping to improve the learning spaces of our lucky Year 4 students. The garden gets hammered by the summer sun (and the long holiday!) and thanks to the very hard work of our Year 4 students during their weekly gardening sessions and the work of Sunday’s crew, the garden is really taking shape.

If you missed the event, please join us for the Term 2 Community Working Bee – the date will be announced shortly. 

In the meantime, we are always looking for materials to improve the garden. If you have pea straw or lucerne bales, solid old garden furniture, arches, or other potentially useful things, please alert the Year 4 teachers immediately!
