E20 The One with the Old Boot

Have you ever seen a guerrilla gardening?

This clip encourages students to get out into the garden and get planting, using whatever is around, under the watchful guidance of River Cottage Australia host, Paul West. It would be a perfect prompt for an outdoor activity involving the school’s garden, or could lead into a science activity around sprouting and germination. Wardandi Bibbulmun Elder Aunty Dale discusses how the soil and environment can affect the taste and aroma of different foods, such as those growing by the beach, like beach banana (pigface).

Factastical #5

Earthworms don’t have teeth instead they feed off the soupy mush of decaying food and microbes. As they feed they act like little ploughs, tunnelling little pockets that water and air get to the roots of plants.
