Wiluna students get their hands dirty

Students at Wiluna Remote Community School have been getting their hands dirty learning how to grow and harvest vegetables in their own garden.

The school is taking part in the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program which aims to provide children with positive associations with healthy food to promote lifelong healthy eating habits.

Learning support teacher Natasha Moore said the children had recently prepared their garden beds for growing peas.

“The kids built structures for their pea plants to grow up and are just about to transplant their seedlings,” she said.

“In the new garden beds are some of the pea, radish and lettuce seedlings students have grown from seed this term.”

Ms Moore said there are about 60 garden beds spread around the school and the students have been learning about nutrition alongside their gardening sessions.
