ENVIRONMENT TEAM CLEANS UP THE PERMACULTURE GARDEN

Last week the Senior Environment Team went into the Permaculture Gardens and cleaned up the area, weeded the garden beds and found some corn and a pumpkin that are ready to be harvested. We also found some interesting bugs and ate some nasturtium flowers and mint. Now the beds are almost ready to start planting our next crop of lovely vegetables.

WINTER VEGIES ARE HARVESTED!

During the last week of term 3 the Senior Environment Team harvested their end of Winter/start of Spring crops. There was a great abundance of silver beet, multi coloured carrots, beetroots and potatoes. Each member took home a bag full of fresh vegetables and there was even enough left over for the office staff to enjoy the harvest. The students also planted seeds in preparation for a Spring/early Summer harvest. We all look forward to reaping the rewards of organic permaculture gardening.

WINTER VEGIES ARE PLANTED!

At the start of May we planted our winter crop of vegies: peas, broad beans, Asian greens, silverbeet, carrots, brocollini, lettuce and coriander. We ate some mint and rocket and devoured the nasturtium flowers…mmmm. We also put down some fresh sugar cane mulch to keep the little seedlings warm!

NEW CROP PLANTED

At the end of March the Senior Environment Team planted a new crop of vegetables: carrots, silver beet, potatoes, strawberries, peas and lettuce. We watered them in and will watch them grow! We also pulled out some VERY overgrown parsnips and ate the last of the cherry tomatoes! YUM!

ENVIRONMENT TEAM HARVEST A SPECTACULAR CROP OF SPUDS

Last week the Senior Environment Team went into the Permaculture Gardens and reaped the rewards of last year’s hard work. We cleaned up the area, weeded the garden beds and harvested a mighty crop of new season’s potatoes. Each team member got to take some yummy potatoes home for their dinner!
