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.
The major costs associated with the project are
Raised Vegetable Beds Soil and compost Manure Mulch Seedlings Paving materials
The $1,000 grant will be used
Raised vegetable beds (DIY ready to plant) - Little veggie patch co.
How they raise the rest of the funding
Through school community fundraising projects.
