Learning about food waste and sustainability

Mount Lockyer Primary School in Albany teaches all its students about food waste and sustainable food practices. Its dedicated ‘Green Team’ collects food scraps from around the school for composting and then applies the compost to the school’s vegetable garden.

Supporting sustainable community gardens

The Gooda Judder Aboriginal Corporation and Brookton Community Inc. strive to grow community gardens that are vibrant, diverse, and water-wise.

Both groups promote the benefits of gardening and are passionate about sharing their knowledge about sustainability and the best ways to grow food.
