Julatten gardeners win comp
THE kitchen garden at Julatten State School is positively thriving during this season. Year 5/6 students, with Ms W and Miss Jennine’s support, have taken responsibility for the planting of seeds, weeding, watering, fertilising and harvesting of garden produce to use in cooking and sell in their Kitchen Garden Stall.
The garden has a range of edible plants growing – tomatoes, corn, parsley, sweet potatoes, silverbeet, passionfruit, pineapples, snow peas and strawberries growing.
Last week, Northern Gulf Resource Management Group notified the class that they had won the primary kids garden produce competition.
Students entered photographs of a bumper harvest of sweet potatoes and offered a top tip for gardening in Julatten. Everyone is now looking forward to the next harvest of vegetables and fruit.
