MRIS’s new Heritage Garden project got underway on Wednesday following Yr 2/3’s visit to Margaret River’s historic homestead, Ellensbrook.
Margaret River Bunnings representatives, Wendy Nailor and Terry O’Brien visited the school to install a propagation table as part of the Heritage Garden project.
Yr2/3 Teacher Kate Appleton said plans were being made to take cuttings from heritage plants in the Ellensbrook grounds which would be propagated for planting in the school gardens further forging a link between the school and the history of Ellensbrook.
The donation was made as part of Bunnings Sustainability Program and also included seedlings, hand tools, buckets, and watering cans.
Little Indies were also lucky enough to receive some gardening items from Bunnings as well.
