Pallets to Plants – Recycled Vegetable Garden (Jells Park Primary School)
Jells Park Primary School is building a vegetable garden using recycled wooden pallets! We are creating a space where fresh produce will be planted, grown and maintained by the students, for the students! The garden will have seating, to encourage an outside classroom for the whole school community to enjoy. Our vegetable garden will also include worm farms and compost bins! We would love to win the grant to help our vision come to life and become a long-standing success in our school community!
The major costs associated with the project are
Approximate costs: Water Tank - $600 Bench seating $400 Organic soil and seeds $400 Plumbing for a tap $400 Gardening equipment: Pruners – $60 Shovels – $60 Watering cans - $60 Garden bed covers - $200 Organic seeds - $ 200 Fruit trees - $200
The $1,000 grant will be used
Water Tank - $600 Organic soil and seeds - $400
How they raise the rest of the funding
Any additional costs will be raised through the school community, for example whole school free dress days. Another fundraiser path for additional cost would be a Bunnings sausage sizzle day or submitting our idea to the Grill’d Local Matters initiative.
