The Green Team was established to be responsible

The Green Team was established to be responsible not only for tending the vegetable garden but also to be responsible for composting. There are currently over 25 children involved in gardening and composting activities.

Composting involves regularly collecting the green waste, adding dry material, turning the compost to aerate it and waiting for it to decompose so that it can be used in the garden. They are amazed seeing scraps turn into rich

garden soil. The vegetable patch is becoming an integral part of curriculum activities. It has been used for maths, science and literacy activities.

A major focus of the school this year was reducing the schools waste by encouraging the children to compost all of their fruit and vegetable scraps.

STEP 1 PLACE YOUR FRUIT AND VEGETABLE SCRAPS INTO THE COMPOST BIN WITH THE GREEN LID.

STEP 2 ADD ONE BUCKET OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLE SCRAPS

STEP 3 ADD ONE BUCKET OF DRY MATERIAL. YOU NEED EQUAL

AMOUNTS OF SCRAPS AND DRY MATERIAL. STEP 4

ONCE A WEEK ADD ONE TABLESPOON OF DOLOMITE LIME

STEP 5 TURN THE COMPOST EVERY DAY IF POSSIBLE This year we have been successful in planting and

harvesting beetroot, lettuce, broccoli, snow peas, rocket, spinach and herbs. The herbs, which were planted in pots, were donated by Hornsby Council as part of our participation in the Ready Set Grow

program. Our fruit salad tree, also donated last year by Hornsby Council, is thriving. We have sold some produce to make money to buy seeds, given some to the canteen and have made

some healthy salads and dips. The favourite salad was a mix of broccoli, snow peas, spinach, mint and parsley with a drizzle of lemon juice. The children were thrilled with the crunch and taste of the

veggies. As the end of the year approaches we await the final harvest of cherry tomatoes, capsicum and basil.

The Go Green Day was held in Term 3 with the help of our school community. Students from Kindergarten through to Year 6 participated in activities designed to build knowledge and

awareness of how humans impact on the environment and the consequences of these actions. Activities included bug hunts, garbage audits,

plant identification, planting seeds,

environmental weaving and many more. It was a fun filled day for everyone. To inform all children of what is

happening in the garden there is a Green Team Blog. Comments can be posted by any child and photos of the delicious produce and the hard

working Green Team can be viewed. To raise funds for seeds and other items for the garden, the Student Representative Council organised a Green Dress-up Day where the

children dressed as fruits or vegetables for a gold coin donation. The Green Team has also sold produce to raise money for seeds.
