@JCU Tuesday planting afternoons with PCYC students (Townsville)
In partnership with TropEco and PCYC, commencing TODAY (Tuesday February 28) we will be having a weekly planting day at the Outdoor Indigenous Learning Space.
Twenty Indigenous and non-Indigenous students from Vincent State School and Garbutt State Schools in the PCYC Deadly Dukes Program will be arriving on campus to plant various local knowledge plants around out Indigenous learning space.
Students will commence planting at 2pm every Tuesday.
This four week program will also consist of sharing of Indigenous knowledges about the scientific and nutritional use of plants with Uncle Russell Butler.
On the final day (March 21st), students will bring their parents and elders out to show what they have learnt from their experience.
We would love to have you join the students to help them plant the knowledge plants and participate in the learning activities.
If you would like to help with the plantings and be part of our planting program, please email your RSVP by Monday 12noon to firstname.lastname@example.org
