Wingecarribee Shire Council’s Schools Environment Day October 2017

The theme our Community Garden team chose to present at this year’s event to over 5 schools out of the 40 schools in the shire who attended was Seed to Seed: The Cycle of Life.

Kathi and I brought along all sorts of seeds, from poppy seed size to avocado pip to demonstrate the diversity of Nature and its endeavours to provide the next generation of plants.  Also starring were the insects that help with pollination of the flowers into seeds – insects such as the introduced bumble bee along with our native stingless bees and all manner of critters including birds who are attracted to the colour, nectar and perfume displayed by the advertising arm of plants:  flowers.

Five school groups interacted with us to learn together about the amazing partnership between plants, insects and birds in the quest for our ecology to sustain and continue.
