Students to turn funding into citrus-growing skills

A group of St Joseph’s High School students will participate in a ‘Grow your own Citrus Workshop’ facilitated by Kathy Finigan tomorrow, 7 March, from 9.15am to 12 noon.

Shellharbour City Council last year invited community groups, organisations and educational institutions including child care centres and preschools to apply.

The workshops were made possible through the Small Environmental Projects Fund. A total of $10,000 was made available. 
Shellharbour City Mayor Marianne Saliba said the initiative was a wonderful way for community groups to learn more about their natural surroundings.

“Eligible groups gained the opportunity to participate in a range of workshops to learn about the local environment and develop skills to undertake environmental projects in the Shellharbour Local Government Area,” Cr Saliba said.

The workshops included:
  • The Butterfly House
  • The Bug Experience
  • Under the Sea
  • Grow Your Own Citrus (tomorrow’s workshop)
  • Grow Your Own Native Garden
