Valla Community Preschool, Valla Beach
Our preschool is situated within a very small and dynamic beach community and has some well developing links and partnerships. We have always had a small vegetable garden and kept a compost and worm farm for preschool use, but this year that expanded a bit when the café across the road started to sell our excess produce and we were able to collect their ground coffee for our gardens and composting.
When the opportunity to apply for an IEU Environment Grant arose, we decided to go for it because we had a strategic plan to expand on ways we can contribute to sustainability practice in our community. We also wanted to further develop our partnerships with community.
So this project was born!
