Organic schools leading into the future.

Did you know Australian Organic Schools now has over 100,000 students using it?

It’s been an incredible start to the school year for one of Australia’s most loved school garden programs.

Australian Organic Schools launched a new website late last year which required participants to reregister to continue using it.

You’re receiving this email because you have been a valued participant, so if you’ve forgotten to reregister, you can do so here. The program is free and aligned with the Australian Curriculum.

If you’ve already reregistered, that’s great and we hope the program is making it easy for you to integrate sustainability and food into the curriculum.

About Australian Organic Schools

The program is run by not for profit group Australian Organic. The company’s Joanne Barber says, “The initiative began five years ago from very humble beginnings so it’s great to see it grow into what it is now.

Interesting blog below. I remember my child-hood family garden was all about weeds and removing them. That hasn’t changed greatly for me in the garden here. If a carrot is growing I will weed around it but always leave the pulled plant, roots exposed to the sun, as mulch.
