Errington Special Education Centre has a terrific horticulture programme that engages the majority of children across our school.
Students get involved in first sewing seeds to germinate vegetables, flowers and other plants. From there they'll be germinated in our glass house, before being transplanted into either pots, our raised garden beds or out into our inground gardens.
We have a full horticulture shed with benches and great storage facilities for the students to work out of the sun or rain.
Vegetables and Fruit grown is harvested for use by the students in their weekly cooking projects. Fresh produce straight from their own garden, reinforcing the message of healthy, flavoursome eating.
Some plants grown are sold by the students as part of their business / commerce studies curriculum, helping them understand money and budgetting. A reward for their year's hard efforts.
