The Garden College Program

 
News date: 
16/06/2017

Throughout Semester 1, our Year 11 VCAL students have been actively involved in 'The Garden Collective' program as part of their Religious Education Studies.

'The Garden Collective' is a food security project where students are involved in exploring the science of growing vegetables in the garden. On June 15, the vegetables were ready for harvest, and students were blessed with the powerful experience and humanity of sharing them.

In recognition of Refugee Week 2017, the fresh herbs and vegetables that students grew were harvested in the morning and delivered to the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre where the produce was added to the offering in their Food Bank and immediately made available to needy parents to be able to prepare a meal for their families.

This social justice initiative was a unique opportunity for our VCAL students to experience this positive, social initiative that does make a difference.
