Buckley House Sustainability Club

The Sustainability Leaders were joined in the garden at lunch time today by Buckley House students in Years 1, 2 and 3.

They are developing a great love of gardening and an understanding of the importance of recycling and composting. It is very rewarding to see such school community involvement is this project. Some pruning in the garden revealed that we had a great deal of rosemary and lots of limes to harvest. A group of Leaders spent a recent lunchtime bundling rosemary and picking limes, and a spur of the moment Sustainability Sale was held after school. We raised $20.40, which will go towards a tumbling compost bin and a worm farm for the Sustainability Garden.

Another Sustainability Sale will happen shortly so we spent today potting succulents in repurposed soft drink bottle terrariums.

The Sustainability Leaders should feel incredibly proud of the contribution they have already made to Buckley House.
