Newcastle Waldorf School: Indigenous Resource Garden

Newcastle Waldorf School

Indigenous Resource Garden

In 2018, Newcastle Waldorf School set out to create a bush tucker garden.  The interactive space is home to a plethora of Indigenous plants which are used in cooking classes, science lessons and more.  Students were involved in the whole process of the project – planning, researching plants, building steps and putting in mulch.  Every student from kindergarten to Year 12 also has their own plant to look after and be responsible for in the garden, and when the student graduates, they will pass on that knowledge to younger students.  The school had also embedded story into the garden lessons, to teach the students more about Indigenous culture.
