Monterey Secondary College Garden Bed Project
Frankston North Rotary liaised with Ardoch Youth Foundation, to build garden beds for the year 9 and 10 students of Monterey Secondary.
The garden beds are designed to assist the students learn and develop their own vegetable garden. The students learn about companion planting, composting and maintaining a healthy garden. The students also learn healthy eating choices as the produce from their gardens are used in their cooking classes.
The produce is also used to make lunch for students who regularly do not have their own lunch from home. It is hoped, as seen with similar projects, that the students will go home and encourage their parents to start their own vegetable gardens.
