Sustainabilty & Gardening News
Today we started feeding our composting worm farms. This will be a great step towards reducing Trinity’s food waste and will make rich worm hastings to help our garden grow beautifully. It is so exciting to see how our vegetables are thriving! Our students picked silverbeet, bok choy, pak choy, parsley, lettuce and calendula flowers today and are looking forward to contributing to family dinner time tonight!
Our calendula flowers are blooming and we’re enjoying harvesting them and munching on the yummy petals. We try to always leave some flowers in the garden because they provide great food for the bees.
We would love to see any photos of our produce taken home being included in your dinner! If you take a photo, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Things we need!
Wooden spoons - to make decorative plant labels for our vegetable gardens.
We still need more paper bags to take our veggies home in. Please leave at the office, labelled “Miss Belinda”. Thank you!
