The Year 4 students sprung into action today to spread peastraw around our food forest. We learnt about what seeds need, and how we can stop weeds... we had some very interesting ideas about how we could block the sun to the weeds and how to stop the peastraw blowing away. There was some great active thinking happening.... and some VERY lateral thinking too.
In the end we decided peastraw would be the best and water would be a good way to stop it from blowing away.
Now we just need to dig over the edge bed to grow some silverbeet for the chickens to snack on.
