Sustainable Horticulture Program:
Mundaring Shire Matching Grant
The Eastern Hills SHS has been successfully running the Sustainable Horticulture Program for many years, the school has been trying to source assistance to expand the project for some time. The school community and parent body under advice of horticulture professionals drafted a plan to upgrade the project. The Eastern Hills SHS P&C supplied $2000.00 the project through the Mundaring Shire matching grant program, which matched the P&C funds of $2000.00 for a total of $4000.00 towards the project. These funds enabled the Sustainable Horticulture Program to upgrade the program. This included: • Additional garden beds adding to our existing garden to allow for a wider variety of plants to be grown and larger crops to be farmed. • The installation of a propagation nursery that has allowed plants and seedlings to be grown all year round. • Installation of a water tank, pump and watering systems which has aided in the collection and use of rain water to provide a more sustainable approach to horticulture • Upgrading of the existing watering reticulation systems • Purchasing of extra plants for the project • Purchasing of extra fish for the fish ponds • Replacement and P gravel around garden walkways We expect that these upgrades will: • See a wider variety of plants produced by our horticulture area, rain water being collected effectively and used to provide water to plants and more garden space to be available for crops. • We hope to gain a better knowledge of sustainable living within the school population and an increase in hands on experience in this area. • This will hopefully help the students in gaining experience in the horticulture industry
