18 participants have embarked on an exciting project of creating environmentally sustainable raised garden beds at the Graham F Smith Peace Foundation in North Adelaide. Participants started on 21 January 2013 and are working towards achieving their Certificate II in Horticulture.
Two days a week the participants are out on site, learning how to identify client’s needs, design the garden and draw a scale plan, research quotes for materials, test soil, propagate plants, use chipper to make mulch, install an irrigation system, look after plants. ‘Hands-on’ training is supported once a week in a classroom environment.
“Our participants are taking the ownership of the development of the garden and are embracing the opportunity to input their ideas into the project, particularly knowing they are supporting The Graham F. Smith Peace Foundation,” – says Josie Parenzee, Horticulture Trainer.
Graham F. Smith Peace Foundation works for Peace through the Arts and supports projects that promote environmental sustainability.
