Organic Vegetable Patch – Camberwell Primary School

Organic Vegetable Patch – Camberwell Primary School

The Grade 4 children at CPS are working towards developing an organic vegetable patch. They will design, construct and plant a range of vegetables, then harvest the produce to cook a lunch for parents and friends. The aim of this project is to create a school culture where children can learn about the importance of biodiversity, food, water and waste. We hope to increase school pride and encourage students to become active citizens who can make a difference.
