Primary Eco Garden – A Delicious, Green Success!

Over the course of Term 1, the Primary Eco Club planned, planted and tended a garden space near the entrance to the Primary School. What started out as a weed-covered area was slowly converted into a fragrant herb garden. In an effort to promote sustainability, the club chose the herbs that they wanted to grow with the ideas of sustenance agriculture and Vietnamese culture in mind.

 Students from Years 3 to 6 came together to reflect on the herbs and flowers that are recognised throughout Vietnam. Then, with the help of Secondary Eco Club members, Johnny and Jenny, the students decided to plant herbs used in pho – basil, onion and mint. After some gruelling weeding and the help of Mr Tri and his maintenance team, the garden space became a more promising area for development. And thanks to Mr Franco, students had plenty of coffee grounds to add to the topsoil, making it even more fertile!

Students spent three weeks planting herbs and flowers, watering the garden and reflecting on the sustainable goals they were fulfilling – healthy eating, reducing hunger and caring for life on land. Then, after some coaching from Ms Duong, the herbs really started to flourish! The herbs were so fragrant and plentiful that the Eco Club had enough of a harvest to throw a ‘Pho Party’ to end the term and celebrate their efforts. Ms Rosy ate a bowl of pho made tasty with the Eco Club’s herbs and pronounced it “absolutely delicious!”

Well done to the Eco Club for their hard work and special thanks to the BVIS staff for helping to guide our students on their journey to create a stunning, sustainable garden space. We look forward to developing the garden further next term!
