Description

On the 29th of February 2008 the Inglewood Schools joined forces when cleaning up the town of Inglewood during the School Clean Up Australia Day. As a result of this day both schools were granted a bush tucker garden each, spronsored through the Queensland Murray Darling Committee. Three plots were chosen at the Inglewood State School and one plot at the St Maria Goretti School. Alot of care was put into choosing the plants and students and parents worked together putting the garden beds up. The result of these gardens is that the students now has developed a keen interest in plants culturally used by Aboriginals as a food source and medicinal uses. On the 2nd of December 2008 the schools hosted an opening ceremony for the gardens, which was sponsored by the Queensland Murray Darling Committee. This day was filled with educational activities such as the students own traditional dance showing how the garden were made and some cultural games. The day ended with a sausage sizzle were some of the students also got the opportunity to try out some of our native bush tucker, the kangaroo.
