Bad news for those wanting to see the TAFE students in action at the market in the Waring Gardens for the stall has been pushed back until December.
As you can see in the pictures below, the students are amassing a large amount of flowers, herbs and veggies to satisfy the desires of market visitors when it finally gets underway.
TAFE is officially over for most of the Cert 1 students though a small group will remain as part of the SEE program, DNS hopes that they will continue to maintain the gardens until the market happens and some students really do hope the stall happens after so much time and expense has gone into the garden.
DNS will report on the garden’s fate as soon as word arrives.
November 14 will be the day when the Cert 1 Access to Work and Training class at TAFE works with Naponda at the local market.
Herbs are on the menu and it is hoped that townspeople will be tempted to buy the chives, mints and other herbs on offer.
The project began with a two person team researching the right mix of vegetables and flowers to plant at Denilquin TAFE before the project was moved to Vinnies Outreach for several weeks with the team expanding to three then falling back to two before all plants and materials were moved back to Deniliquin TAFE which required all class members in order to make things happen.
The class is confident that it will go well as the herbs are continuing to grow at an excellent rate ensuring that any demand from market goers are met when November 14 comes around.
