Creating Vegetable Gardens at Crookwell Preschool

Oct 25, 2011 by

The Veolia Mulwaree Trust funded $5883 towards a water tank and creating vegetable gardens as part of the educational environment and environmental sustainability at the SDN Crookwell Preschool.

Centre Director, Anne Reeves, said the

children who attend Crookwell Preschool have been involved in nurturing the garden and enjoying fresh vegetables. Families have taken home fresh rocket to enjoy and the water tank is full and enables watering of the garden.

The project aims to encourage students to learn about the environment through 'outdoor learning' and interaction in developing their own garden, learn about the importance of nutrition in leading a healthy lifestyle and help Crookwell Preschool to reduce water consumption from town water supply.
