Mac Robertson Environmental Club showcased a massive suite of different projects and tips to both live more sustainably and improve the local environment. They certainly made their mini grant go a looong way!
After much site preparation from groups and dedicated individuals, the gals got busy planting herbs, veggies, the iconic Wollemi pine, and an
indigenous garden. They had some niffy ideas to reuse magazines, toilet rolls and newspaper as starter pots, and check out their cute little hessian bag planter idea too!
Like troopers they navigated planks of food and pallets sourced free around the area to school on the school bus. Mind boggling!
What a great memory to have now that the wood has been turned into planter boxes – and producing great crops to boot!
They collected food scraps for the compost garden and encouraged a worm population to create the good stuff. They held workshops to assist others to reduce waste by making wax wraps, bath bombs and body scrubs – no plastic in sight!
They honed their letter writing skills with a request to local businesses such as Bunnings for soil and other materials. A big thank you to the community for supporting this worthwhile project!
Importantly they kept their school community up to date on their project successes to raise awareness and celebrate their great activit
y. R&S would like to congratulate Mac Rob and the Enviro Team for their huge efforts that really do show a holistic approach to sustainability. These pics are just a small sample from the great images sent to R&S – which included lots and lots of mouth watering organic veggies and herbs. What a feast. You should be proud Gals!
