Good stuff. My son decided to go into the ranks of teaching last year. He teaches physically and mentally impaired kids and young adults. He loves his job and his "kids" love him. You're doing good things there Jay.

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm making it up as I go really. The best part at the moment is the students are becoming more motivated now they are starting their own systems

Yes this will get regular updates as its a working project - Have to find something for the gang to do continuously :)

Here is me collecting a $250 voucher and this wheel barrow full of stuff for entering the AP project into the NGIV school gardens competition.

There were a couple of presenters talking about gardening in schools - facinating insights into design, techniques and plants that work well in school gardens.
