Project Description


Glengarry Primary School is a charming little school nestled within a small country town, surrounded by the forests of Glengarry North and framed within the stunning mountains of the Great Dividing Ranges.

The Stephanie Alexander Gardens Project allows the children to get out and get dirty providing hands on learning through planting. Partnered with Max Sargent Stem was brought in to design a space that brought with it the beneficial friends that are not the human kind…

A native frog pond and insect homes were designed and constructed with the help of 4 school captains. This was to support the edible gardens, to allow bugs to pollinate the fruits and vegetables, and have the frogs maintain a happy medium.

The kids learnt how to create ecosystems to support their gardens and how easy it is to create habitats for animals even within urban environments.
