Coolaroo Photo from the Edible Eden website, Photo from the Edible Eden website,The school contacted us to install a Rain Garden and Frog Pond assisted by a grant from Melbourne Water. The most suitable site found for a Rain Garden was an underutilised shelter area, surrounded by weedy plantings of Cotoneaster.

The area features an educational Rain Garden that was built by the students working with the Edible Eden team, which through a river pebble stream feeds the frog pond with clean water.

The Rain Garden, Frog Pond and surrounding new gardens are all planted with local indigenous plants, furthering the student’s knowledge and interaction with the local landscape.
