NEW BUSH TUCKER GARDEN FOR LISMORE SOUTH
Lismore South Public School will get a new bush tucker garden with funding provided by the NSW Government.
The garden will grow a range of native plants and will be used to teach students about Australia’s native flora, indigenous culture and environmental sustainability.
It will also be fitted out with tables and seating to create an enjoyable outdoor area at the school.
A total of $5,000 will be provided to assist the school with the project.
Member for Lismore Thomas George said the project will be a wonderful addition to the school, which had been affected by the floods in northern NSW earlier this year.
“The school community has had a tough year and I’m glad that we can help create a new and exciting space for students here at Lismore South,” Mr George said.
“The bush tucker garden is a project the school has been working on for quite some time, and will be a wonderful addition to the yarning circle that is being created.
“I’m delighted the NSW Government is helping to deliver it.”
Education Minister Rob Stokes said he was pleased to support the school’s efforts.
“Initiatives like this bush tucker garden help foster a love of learning in students, and show them beauty and wonder of Australia’s natural environment,” Mr Stokes said.
“I’m glad this funding will help the school realise this project.”
