Sustainable gardening at Galen

Students in the Year 9 ‘Seeds of Change’ Integrated Studies program quite literally had a constructive week back at school as they set about building new self-wicking plant boxes to be situated on-site at the college. Thanks to generous donations from a number of local businesses, the cohort was grateful to receive many shipping pallets, which they were then able to deconstruct and repurpose. This task aligns closely with the course focus on sustainability, and Year 9s look forward to seeing their freshly built self-wicking beds deliver a bumper crop this summer!
