Teaching Resources

A number of teaching resources are available for sustainability educators.

Green Graffiti Grant

Students at Parkmore Primary School in Forest Hill have received Council grant to put into practice their vision for a school food garden.

This project, called Green Graffiti, teaches students that even small spaces can be used to produce food and that everyone's actions can impact the environment.

Students were involved in building the pallets, as well as planting, nurturing, harvesting and preparing the produce.

The pallet gardens are on castors so they can be moved around to make the most of the changing weather conditions.
