SCHOOL students got their hands dirty in Hamersley for an annual Arbor Day event.
Hamersley Habitat Community Garden hosted students from East Hamersley and Glendale primary schools in Hamersley, and Warwick Senior High School last week.
Garden volunteers taught them about different native plants, vegetables, flowers, organic practices, soil conditions and amending Perth’s sandy soils.
Co-ordinator Donelle Wilson said a Friends of Warwick Bushland representative also attended to educate students about local indigenous plants.
“It was a wonderful morning with people of all ages coming together to enjoy and learn about nurturing and sustaining a healthy environment and to have a bit of fun in an outdoor classroom,” she said.
