Planning the garden
With community members not permitted in schools with COVID restrictions, Brenden Moore (Aboriginal Community Greening Officer and Steve Buckley (AEO Bermagui Primary School) talked to the whole school about their connections to native plants and culture. Brenden played the didgeridoo and discussed culture around plants, whilst Steve talked about the local stories and landmarks and culture specific to the region.
This was followed up with a PowerPoint showcasing successful garden creations at other schools to provide inspiration. All of the students drew their own design of the space including plants and other aspects of the design.
