Resurrection Primary 4

Photo from the Edible Eden website,This exciting project came about as part of building a new learning centre for the school, complete with outdoor kitchen.

The architect, Mark Meaden, asked us to design a garden to engage the children and provide an attractive outlook for the new buildings.

The project included design and planting of a Food Forest, wrapping around existing raised timber vegetable beds, a ‘Graze Maze’ where children and edible plants interact through play.

Native herbs were planted in blocks near the outdoor kitchen and a playful grass mound was topped with an Olive tree.

A large feature window in the library looks onto the Eco-Garden – a native garden with rainwater stream flowing to the native fish pond then on to a ‘Yabbitat’ – for the resident Yabbie.
