Bush Tucker Garden and Outdoor Classroom

Establishing a native bush tucker garden at Sunshine Beach State School and revitalising the outdoor learning space.

The Sunshine Beach State School will extend the boundaries of its existing permaculture garden to establish a native bush tucker garden and revitalise the outdoor learning space. The project will provide better management of the Noosa National Park segment that sits within the school grounds.

The project has the capacity to have a transformative impact on the children engaged in the program and may lead to bigger ideas from the school in the future.

The aim of this project is to provide a management system for this area of the biosphere, which is not currently protected. We will improve the biodiversity by removing weed species, identifying icon species and species integral to icon animals, protecting them from future damage and planting additional tubes of the same and complementary natives.

By completing these projects with students from the school we can promote awareness and respect for the biosphere and promote greater management of current and future resources.
