SOUTH WEST TAFE students have been toiling in the dirt, tending to their broad beans, as part of their ongoing project at the Portland Community Garden.
As part of their Certificate I in Work Education, the project encourages students to work as a team, tend to the growing vegetables and be involved in the community.
South West TAFE’s Therese Dolman is pleased with the contribution the students have made this year.
“The students have been completing a series of projects and written work as part of their learning outcomes.
“They have been working on the garden since February, building and maintaining four garden beds.”
The students also built a scarecrow, affectionately naming it Marilyn, to scare away the nearby water hens from their garden.
