This morning the Devereux brothers and Jermaine met with Mrs Cogger to work in St Emilie’s Community Veggie Garden. Mrs Cogger was here early (in the freezing cold) to set everything up. The boys and their parents had a busy morning.
Firstly they had to pull up a lot of radishes. The radishes will need to be harvested by end of term to make space for the potatoes we have received from Seed Potatoes for Schools from WA Potatoes.
Then the boys had to pick and bag the rocket. Finally we were ready to take the produce to the hall to sell to the parents arriving for the Year 5 assembly item.
A small group of Year 6 students will calculate the profit as they manage the veggie accounts for Mrs Cogger.
St Emilie’s Community Veggie Garden will continue in Term 3 so if you would like to be involved please email Mrs Cogger.
