Chirnside Park Pre-School – Help Us Grow! – New Vegie Garden
As children are naturally inquisitive and creative our purpose is to involve them in the planting, watering, care and harvesting of the vegetables. By involving the children, they will learn how things grow and the benefits associated with growing our own vegetables. Ideally, early exposure in gardening will foster a love of the outdoors and encourage the children to take an active role in caring for the environment and help them begin to understand their role in a sustainable future.
The major costs associated with the project are
Merbau timber in which to construct the timber box and lockable lid; Posts and concrete for the posts; Soil and plants; Labor costs associated with the construction of the project
The $1,000 grant will be used
The purchase of the Merbau timber in which to construct the timber box and lockable lid, the posts and the concrete for the posts to ensure stability and the purchase of soil and plants. We would also have labor costs associated with the construction of the project.
How they raise the rest of the funding
We have recently run a chocolate drive and are having a sausage sizzle at our local Woolies to raise further funds.
