Their home base garden at Bonbeach Primary School is their pride and joy, winning regional school garden awards and environmental awards for sustainability. In 2017 they won the Victorian School Garden Awards and Kevin Heinz Perpetual award for the nature play garden created. It is also the foundation where students and the community access knowledge about urban farming and all that it entails.
