What do thousands of drink cans and a worm farm have in common?
The two have been used to create a bountiful and healthy veggie garden in the grounds of Pacific Palms Public School.
It was made possible through a big recycling program undertaken by Pacific Palms Surf Life Saving Club, which in turn donated funds from the Return and Earn Program to the school
This wonderful support has allowed the Green Team to purchase seedlings, gardening equipment and a new worm farm, a school spokesperson said.
"And it has also saved 1000s of drink containers ending up in landfill."
The seedlings were planted in the canteen garden and yielded a bumper crop of lettuces, cucumbers, parsley and tomatoes.
This produce has been used in the canteen to help make salads and wraps.
"Our carefully cared for worms have been working hard recycling the food scraps and providing us with castings and worm wee to help our garden grow.
"Worms really are the best recyclers in the world."
The members of the Green Team have shown great commitment in their roles and responsibilities for term one.
They are looking forward to their new roles and planting the autumn garden beds next school term.
