Noosa school students have been learning about growing food at the Cooroy Community Permaculture Gardens. Here you can see the Kent pumpkin used to show what the seeds the boys have planted will grow into.

The Pumpkin patch seen behind the students was created using sheet-mulching as the method of tucking in the clay and then the shovelling on top of soil and manure. A great way for the Noosa School to help these boy’s feel very proud of the growing of food by visiting the Gardens. Watch this patch and the smiles that will spread, along with the pumpkins. Thank you for this lovely exchange with Val and Latha.
