Last Friday Ellemor 5 were making a tea out of cinnamon sticks, honey, lemon grass and mint. We were pulling the lemon grass out from the ground in our Garden. And we cut off the mint from the aquaponics beds.
It tasted nice and beautiful and healthy and fresh.
There were no chemicals in our tea and we didn’t use any plastic so it was good for the earth too.
This Friday we asked to make more tea! This time we made our own flavours and we were choosing some ginger, lemon, cloves and agave syrup.
We were using the lemongrass like a straw. We love making fresh tea!
The little chickens were outside the cage and playing in the big yard today.
Kambah is taking care of the little chickens.
She is keeping the mean and jealous dogs away.
Kambah is radiating LOVE!!!
The little chickens were excited to be running around. We were radiating LOVE too!

Thanks so much for reading our blog, we are all excited to get comments from you, it makes us feel so proud of our work in the Garden and our Classroom.
We would like to know who you are and where you live and grow a garden too, so please add your name to your comments and we will get back to you.
Recently we have been pruning the Mulberry trees. Cutting the tree is the easy part.
But Ellemor 5 kids don’t just hack the tree. They prune like professional Gardeners, making sure branches don’t cross over, and that lots of light can get into the tree.
Pretty soon our pruned Mulberry tree will be producing masses of fruit again. We are so lucky in the Northern Territory that our Mulberries reward us with fruit many times a year.
I am really proud of the work these kids can do in the Garden, they are developing valuable skills for the rest of their lives.

We should reduce the amount of plastic in our school lunches
Firstly, we should reduce the amount of plastic in our school lunches because birds will eat the plastic and get sick.
Secondly, we should reduce the amount of plastic in our school lunches because the dogs will eat the plastic and choke.
Finally, we should reduce the amount of plastic in our school lunches because the school looks rubbish when kids drop the lunch containers on the ground.
These are the reasons why we should reduce the amount of plastic in the school lunches.
We should reduce the amount of plastic in our school lunches.
Firstly we should reduce the amount of plastic in our school lunches because the rubbish will find it’s way to the beach and the animals will eat the plastic and die.
Secondly, we should reduce the amount of plastic in our school lunches because Jacob is sick of picking up the rubbish.
Finally, we should reduce the amount of plastic in our school lunches because rubbish is bad for the environment.
These are the reasons why we should reduce the amount of plastic in our school lunches.

This week we learned about what the sun does, it makes plants grow.
Our Mulberry tree has grown up so much. So we were making cuttings and planting them and making new trees. We are getting good at making new trees and we can make them by ourself.
Today we were giving the two eggs to Lou.
She was happy for those eggs.
She was busy working in the Library with the new books so we say thankyou.

The Garden looks like good with Wendy in the garden.
We like to garden good in the garden.
The paw paw tree is growing flowers. When we eat the paw paw we keep the seeds and grow some more trees for our home for free one .
