As part of the Turner House Early Learning Centre’s unit of enquiry ‘Sharing the planet: Caring for the Environment is our Responsibility’, ELC students built a vegetable garden. The garden was prepared not only to educate students, but also to produce vegetables and add to the beauty of the ELC outdoor play area.
