Our Eddies Gardening Club provides students the opportunity to learn about where ‘real food’ comes from through vegetable and herb gardening in a fun, social environment.
Originally founded as a Year 10 science project, the garden has now opened to become a Co-curricular activity. Through generous support of time, skills and tools from students, teachers and parents, the garden has now grown to house various raised garden beds, a worm farm, its own greenhouse and composting facility. This co-curricular is now primarily a Junior School option.
The gardening program takes the students through an annual calendar of garden planting, maintenance and harvesting. Produce from the garden is used by the canteen and Food Science Department to provide an organic option and help reduce food mileage.
The Gardening Club meets at lunchtimes during the school week.
