We’ve been successful with our application for a Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant for our project, Fragrant Native Garden!
Our project aims to establish a fragrant native garden within the grounds of our school. To enhance the vegetable garden area by dismantling old sleeper beds and creating a new environment where students can observe and study indigenous plants. The native scented garden will become a resource for students to learn skills, knowledge and understanding of the living world.
New Lambton South Public is one of 538 primary schools and early learning centres throughout Australia receiving a Woolworths Junior Landcare grant to help grow our next generation of environmental champions.
The grants are being funded with money made from the sale of the Woolworths recyclable Bag for good™ which was launched in 2018 when the supermarket stopped using single-use plastic bags.
The children and teachers are looking forward to working and learning from this project and we’ll keep you updated on the results.
