JUNE 2012

Copy of P1000267

Barely 3 months since we started  and  the original wasteland  turned into a productive veggie patch. Nature supported us  by  providing generous   Autumn rains.

                      

our very first crop

 It looks modest but it is  a milestone none the less!

    

  lovely crisp  bunches  of cavolo nero, coriander, dill,  red,white and purple icicle radishes, baby beets and spring onions

My name is Helena Foster, I'm the slightly nervous author of the School Harvest blog site, nervous because I'm learning the fine art of blogging pretty much as I go. I'm driven by the fact that what we do is so exciting and so important, it needs to be shared. Formerly a garden specialist at WWPS Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden, I now conduct an intensive community garden program at Wodonga Middle Years College. I work with student volunteers 11 to 15 years old in order to teach them organic gardening skills which will hopefully enable them to make better lifestyle choices for themselves and their community in the future. I am thrilled to be part of the movement where schools take on the task of educating young generations about this most basic of prerequisites towards sustainable, food secure future.
