Finalist: Water Warrior Award
Tamborine Mountain State School
Tamborine Mountain State School has designed an outdoor environment and sustainability area which encompasses fruit, vegetable and herb gardens. The area also includes a chicken tractor, butterfly garden with native bees, 5 worm farms, an Indigenous Bush Tucker garden and a Yarning Circle.
The space is an area where students are educated about local environment, nature and sustainability projects. It attracts visitors and volunteers from the community and organisations such as Tamborine Mountain Landcare. This project balances education and understanding of natural assets by incorporating technology with the natural local environment.
