In Term Three, Year 7s were kindly donated a range of seedlings from the Southern Beaches Community Garden (SBCG) at Tugun. We linked this to our learning in Science about taking care of our planet through renewable and non-renewable resources.

Community gardens are a great way for residents without their own garden, or those who want to be part of a community gardening project, to get out and use their green thumb.

This Gardening group are dedicated to the goal of utilising their community garden for the general sharing of sustainable and environmentally friendly gardening ideas and knowledge. And, at the same time, providing an outlet to a healthy lifestyle and an overall better quality of life for the community as a whole.

Earlier in Term Four saw us again plant plants, this time for our Year 12s, again kindly donated by the Southern Beaches Community Garden. Somerset College has had a connection with this Community based organisation for four years now and we are very grateful for their generosity.

At our Year Level Meeting last week, we thanked this wonderful organisation for their donation. Year 7s presented Mr Chris Eddelbuttel (a representative of the SBCG) a basket of gardening gear to show our appreciation.
