The Green Thumb Project
Date: March 12, 2018
The Green Thumb Project is the innovation of Year 12 student, Ben Waddell, who is assisted by Nathan Austin and overseen by Mr Garth Reid, Director of Student Development. These champions of sustainability are supported by ten other Suncoast students who meet every Tuesday lunch time in the College Community Garden.
Their brief this term has been to prepare the barren chicken coop to house chickens who will take up residence during Term 2 of this year. To date, they have spent their lunch hours cleaning, weeding and cutting back vegetation, investigating ways to best provide food and water for the chickens as well as preparing a roster for the ongoing care and maintenance for our new residents.
Watch this space as this innovative project unfolds, which includes introducing our new arrivals, visiting hours and the unveiling of the revamped ‘Chook House’.
