Growing Green Thumbs aim to excite and educate your students about their environment. We teach them how to reduce their carbon footprint in an age / stage appropriate manner, tailored for your unique environment.
Seasonal workshops will inspire your students to make a positive impact on their environment. We can show how to compost, worm farm, manage waste, conserve water, grow organic food and connect to nature – all at your venue.
Your students, and our environment, are what we are about! We conduct one off workshops, incursions, as well as a more sustained program running across a term or year and can help you meet the national quality framework.
We help you meet:
- Quality Area 3, Element 3.2.3 of the National Quality Framework (February 2018) – ‘The service cares for the environment and supports children to become environmentally responsible’,
- Quality Area 6, Element 6.2.3 of the National Quality Framework (February 2018) – ‘The service builds relationships and engages with its community’.
We provide valuable lessons in sustainability for early learning, primary schools and the wider community. We are recognized for our work in the garden and permaculture industry. Our work has achieved multiple awards for children’s playgrounds, gardening and waste initiatives. You can see our work published in magazines and leading garden books. We have led professional development and teacher training with horticultural societies and at the 2018 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. Growing Green Thumbs and Bonbeach Primary School won the Kevin Heinz Perpetual Award and the Victorian School Garden Award in 2017 for our primary school curriculum program and nature play garden.
