The Westlake Girls Gardening Club was started at the start of Term 1. It is a small group of six students and two teachers who oversee the gardeners and help us. We are currently growing broccoli, lettuce, silverbeet and carrots that we plan to give back to the community and our Food Technology Department.
We also have some bright flowers – the cherry on top of our garden! The garden is located behind the science classrooms in three wooden boxes. We are grateful for the rain at the moment and are excited for our seeding to start growing, but right now it feels as if were are just waiting for the grass to grow. It’s a good lesson in patience!
