Tending to native plants, gardens and bees is on the agenda for students across Brisbane Catholic Education Schools – as they live out their commitment to Pope Francis’ call to ‘Care for Our Common Home’ this National NAIDOC Week (2 to 9 July).
“The wattle tree has been a wonderful addition to our native walkway, and it is thriving due to the wonderful care our Sustainability Garden Group has provided over the past eight months,” he added.
