A Big thank you to Bunnings!

Tinkertime has been a great opportunity to learn about sustainability, gardening and recycling. Today saw the addition of another garden and a compost bin being made by the fabulous team at Bunnings.

The team arrived today with bags of compost, seedlings, garden bed and pallets. They proceeded to make the garden bed and compost bins with the help of many willing hands. They showed the students how to create a garden bed from scratch. The students then planted a range of winter vegetables.

The bin is ready and waiting for the students to fill the compost bin with leaves, clippings and paper. This will take a few weeks to process. 

The visit from Bunnings came about beacuse of Mrs Shabaya's class winning scarecrow design at the Camden show.Mrs Shabaya's beautiful scarecrow won and first prize was a sustainability workshop. 

We have been very fortunate in the way that the students have been able to see our garden area take shape and grow through the efforts and generosity of lots of different people. 

Please come and visit our garden sometime!


  1. I would agree with Mrs Todd, Bunnings Warehouse did a outstanding effort to help us build a 'Compost Bin' and another garden. This term we have been learning about sustainability and this is probably the best lesson yet...
