Pembroke Secondary College Working Bee July 2010

The Year 9 students at Pembroke Secondary College spent a number of periods spreading several truck loads of mulch, and then planting out over 300 plants over 2 sessions. The result has been very well commented upon by visitors and regulars that use the Reserve. The plants are starting to really establish themselves in the various garden beds around the Reserve.
