Patch to love and learn
EIGHT-year-old Brooke Oram is as proud as punch of her little patch of garden.
So are the other students at Gracemere's Waraburra State School who've recently started their own community garden. Brooke said she liked looking at the flowers and had planted some of the seeds.
"My favourite colour flower is yellow and I've even started a garden at home," she said. Curriculum co-ordinator Susan Thaw said it had been the school's longtime dream to have a community garden.
"Learning about a healthy lifestyle and about different fruits and vegetables has become a part of the school's curriculum," Mrs Thaw said.
North Rockhampton Bunning's Warehouse provided four garden beds worth $300 each.
