Enviroschools Workshop Thames

What a great day!

I was able to attend the Enviroschools workshop held in Thames today and have a fantastic time exploring community gardens, community orchards and planting, adobe buildings and discussing this years focus ‘Global Problems, Local Solutions’.

Brightsmile Garden Thames

Great inspiration for our community garden creation.  Effectively managed beds in the shape of a mandala.  Areas dedicated to tropical plants and protected/sheltered by feijoas and citrus.

Garden beds managed with a permaculture focus using chop and drop method for weeds to feed the soil with hot compost being created directly onto garden beds.

The outdoor area including an earth built shed gave great inspiration for our outdoor classroom plan at school.

This would be a great place for our students to visit.
