Black Forest Primary now 25

Black Forest primary's school food garden is probably Australia's oldest.

Thanks to the work of innovative and dedicated teachers, the garden integrates with curriculum subjects and features an outdoor classroom.

The images that follow, and those on the home page, were sent by Black Forest's Kate Hubmayer.

I’ve got plans to extend the garden a little to make room for more fruit trees & chooks later this year.
