Creation of an edible garden at a primary school.

This garden includes fruit trees, vegetables and herbs in garden beds at a disadvantaged school.

The old garden beds were removed, new edging and soil installed prior to planting.  Parents, teachers and child joined Rotarians and community volunteers over a month.
