Completed and Operational
With an existing greenhouse, Food Ladder began discussing opportunities with Sheffield School in regards to the installation of an easy to install and use hydroponic system. Work began in early August 2021 and only took a couple of days to construct with a lot of help from students (years 4-5 / 5-6). Apart from the hands-on learning experience of construction, the produce from this system will be utilised in the healthy eating programs.
Food Ladder acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which this greenhouse is built, the Palawa peoples. We celebrate the diversity of Aboriginal peoples and their ongoing cultures and connections to the lands and waters of Tasmania. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people that contributed to the development of this resource.
