Science at Silverton

Gardening Reality Group worked together to design a new vegetable garden for our school and now it has been constructed.

During Term One, students in in the Gardening Reality Group worked together to design a new vegetable garden for our school. Students searched the Internet for design ideas and together we chose elements from a variety of designs to come up with a design that would work for us.

Over the holidays our new raised garden beds were constructed and the fence is almost completed.

 Students in Grade 3/4 grew vegetable seedlings from seeds in Term Two and this week they planted some of the seedlings into the vegetable garden beds. They also learnt about companion planting and the vegetables have been planted next to vegetables/ herbs that are beneficial to their growth.
