FRESH food was the fare of the day when Marmion Primary School recently held a garden party barbecue.

Pre-primary teacher Kylie Harris said the school set up the Marmion Edible Garden (MEG’s) Patch this year and held the party with students, teachers, parents and community members who had helped.

During last term, Year 1 students visited the garden and picked lettuce, beetroot and herbs, then made ‘school grown’ sandwiches.
