Trangie Central School (TCS) has been announced as one of the recipients of the $1.1 million NSW Environmental trust grants awarded to schools and researchers.
TCS is one of 80 schools benefiting from the grants, with 60 schools sharing in $150,000 under Eco schools program and 20 grants totalling $70,000 to be awarded for Food gardens in school projects.
'The primary and secondary school children building food gardens and the students doing innovative environmental projects will all transfer their learning to peers, family and communities,' said Environment Minister Robyn Parker. 'The benefit of these grants will spread far wider than the projects themselves by supporting students, educators and researchers to improve their environmental understanding and help to educate the wider community.'
The TCS Bush tucker garden and Aboriginal culture project focuses on connecting young Indigenous people and communities with the environment whilst teaching them about the importance of fresh fruit and vegetables (including traditional bush tucker foods) in a healthy diet.
