Last week, Rob and Louise from Bunnings Heatherbrae visited Irrawang High School and assisted with building and planting sensory garden beds for students in the Irrawang Learning Alliance program.
From helping the students build the garden beds, to filling them with soil (with thanks to Hortico) and planting them out, their assistance was invaluable.
Lue Fagan from Irrawang High School told News Of The Area, “Lavender, mint, lemon balm, rosemary and geranium citrosa have been planted and already smell amazing.”
“We can’t thank Bunnings Heatherbrae enough for their assistance with this project, and their support of our student’s vision.”
Students from the Irrawang Learning Alliance participate in agriculture and gardening programs to help students improve their social, emotional, and physical well-being.
Students also gain invaluable life skills from these programs.
Students learn skills such as how propagate vegetable plants, how to care for the environment, and the importance of vegetables in maintaining a healthy diet.
Louise Bowen from Bunnings told News Of The Area, “Together, the students and our Bunnings team have constructed four garden beds out of fully recycled timber.”
“We enjoy being a part of these projects and getting to play a part in the community.”
