Our Garden

The ‘Childish Plot’ nestles in a sunny corner at Spensley Street Primary School, next to the adventure playground. Children work with Karen to tend a garden of edible plants.

We use the polyhouse and surrounding gardens to sow, grow, harvest, prepare and share the produce from the Plot.

The OSHC program aims to provide a safe place for children to play, learn something new and have fun with friends. The Afters program is a great time for children to unwind after the school day and build strong friendships with children of all ages.
