Learners and Educators get stuck in!

Growing your own food is hard work, but it is so rewarding harvesting your own potatoes. Last year before our long December holidays our Water Explorers started to have some plots in front of their classrooms by planting potatoes. We were excited to unearth a mass of potatoes that we had planted - the rewards were great. It was a great team effort and reflected very good work, they enjoyed!Learners and some educators were monitoring after planting onions, cabbage, beetroot and spinach. We use dry grass as our compost . Learners here were enjoying mulching to save water, they know that mulching prevents evaoporation and the mulch adds value to the soil. We never use chemicals on our garden as it costs in many way - polluting water, wasting money and wasting resources that we have, such as compost! 

It was great to see the enthusiasm as we prepared our new beds for the year -everyone got involved even 3 teachers. Try growing it yourself!
