Your Garden Organics Garden Blitz 2018

Cessnock, Maitland and Singleton Councils would like to thank all the schools, preschools and community groups that applied to have a professional garden makeover as part of Your Garden Organics Garden Blitz 2018.

The quality of the applications and the dedication of the staff and volunteers behind the entries definitely set us a challenge! However after long deliberation three entries from each council were shortlisted for site visits before the final selections were made – Millfield Public School, Maitland Tutorial Centre and Singleton Heights Public School.

Garden Blitz 2018 was designed to be a tangible demonstration of the benefits of councils’ introduction of the garden organics service for the community and environment. By choosing to use your garden organics bin to dispose of your excess garden vegetation you have helped make this project possible!

The mulch, compost and soil conditioners used in the garden makeovers are produced by Australian Native Landscapes from the material collected in the garden organics bins. From garden organics bin to garden bed – completing the cycle !

Cessnock – Millfield Public School

See how the entrance to Millfield Public School was given a revamp by the students, community and Cessnock Council’s garden organics service as part Garden Blitz 2018.

The high quality organic soil conditioner  used will encourage healthy plant growth and provide drought resilience for the summer to come and was capped off with seating and table made from recycled plastic bags.

Just goes to show what we an achieve when we put the right thing in the right bin and what was once wasted to landfill gets a new life for all the generations to enjoy.

See how Maitland Council’s garden organics service Garden Blitz team came to the rescue of the staff and students of the Maitland Tutorial Centre and gave their school garden and outdoor learning centre a huge one day makeover using quality organic soil conditioner made by Australian Native Landscapes from the material collected in the garden organics bin. Competing the cycle from garden organics bin to school gardening.

 

Singleton -Singleton Heights Public School

See how an underused area of Singleton Heights Public School was transformed into a multi-cultural sensory outdoor learning area using material collected through the council garden organics bin and processed by Australian Native Landscapes into a high quality soil conditioner and compost to rebuild and drought proof the soil
