OUR FROG POND 8 MONTHS LATER

the garden pond proved to be a wonderful success, both with local fauna  and our students. Families of grass parrots, plovers, crimson rosellas, willy wagtails, blue wrens, gallahs, magpies and ibises have settled in the neighbourhood because they are assured of constant water supply. Also,we have already raised several generations of frogs.

very often small groups of students are seen sitting on the edge of the pond quietly chatting and enjoying the atmosphere

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.
