Completed September 2022
Broome is a remote coastal town in Western Australia’s Kimberley region. It’s home to Broome Senior High School, which has over 850 students from Year 7 to Year 12, where 38 per cent of the students have an Indigenous background and 32 per cent have a language background other than English.
The system will be incorporated into the whole high school curriculum where the students will be charged with running and looking after the greenhouse. Broome Senior High School have an already established kitchen garden program, with an outdoor garden prospering with tomatoes, melons and cucumbers. The students love cooking in their school kitchen and cannot wait to incorporate their leafy greens.
Progress since completion
The students are excitedly looking forward to Term 4 ahead, after planting cos lettuce, iceberg lettuce, basil and bok choy at the end of Term 3.
A harvest lunch is already in motion, with stakeholder collaboration during Term 1 2023.
