School Vegetable Garden
Dingley Primary currently has the basis of a vegetable garden but it needs a boost to start producing enough vegetables for student use. A group of keen parents have started a ‘Garden Club’ and are meeting with the children once a week to work on the vegie patch. It is vital that the students within our school community get the opportunity to learn as much as they can about the growing of vegetables and healthy eating through hands on experiences including growing and cooking the vegetables.
The total project cost is $1 900.00
The major costs associated with the project are
Item 1 $1200 Materials for construction of garden beds and trellis
Item 2 $300 Vegetable seedlings and propagation equipment
Item 3 $200 Soil
Item 4 $200 Garden equipment
The $1,000 grant will be used to purchase some of the materials for the garden beds and trellis.
The Garden Club will conduct some lunchtime activities charging students for involvement.
