Food Garden Programs
The programs aim to achieve an understanding of 7 learning outcomes:
- The seasons, seasonal planting and eating
- Plant and insect life cycles
- Pests and beneficial insects
- How to grow healthy soil
- Basic survival needs of plants
- Organic gardening
Book one season or all seasons in the food garden. Start a native food garden or find out more about waste management with a compost awareness workshop.
Greenhill Living will introduce the food garden to students and keep it alive in their minds during all the seasons of the year.
Each session will include an interactive reading of Greenhill Living books, The Garden Gang with Gaye the Garden Girl.
The reading session will be followed by a seasonal planting activity in the food garden, or an individually tailored garden activity, specific to your garden.
Primary School Programs
Australian Curriculum links have been made, specifically within Biological Science and Sustainability learning areas.
Links to many Australian Curriculum areas can be made specific to your school. The program aims to keep the school food garden growing through all the seasons and ensure our children are encouraged to demonstrate care for our environment. It starts in the school yard! Learning surrounded by a living outdoor learning environment.
