Biodiversity Garden Progress….

Students have been busy digging in soil and compost into their gardens to prepare for their Spring plantings. As supplies arrive, students continue to construct their rainwater garden dry creek beds, filling these with river pebbles and planting a variety of plants to filter debris from water heading to drains.

Plants to attract butterflies and insects are planted, lizard nooks are created with logs, rocks and plants, a tasty variety of snack foods have been planted now to be picked in the warmer months, bush tucker plants are being nurtured and bird structures are being created alongside flowering trees to attract species of native birds into the garden.

Students in Il Nido have written a blurb for each type of garden. Read these below!
