Art and gardening join forces at VU

Last term, VU Community Garden horticulture students showed year 5/6 students from St Augustine's Primary School Yarraville through the VU Community garden in Seddon. The schools visit to the garden formed part of a Community Engagement Art project initiated by VU horticulture students.

During their visit, students gained learned how vegetables grow and learnt about sustainable gardening practices including worm farming, composting and using water wisely.

The inspirations gained by these students from their visit have been transferred into art works back at school during art class.

Bunnings Maribyrnong sponsored the project and donated the cement sheeting and paint.
