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.
