School Planting Day
On Thursday, 3 November 2022, we were joined by students from Brompton Primary School, representatives from Green Adelaide, the University of South Australia and the City Of Charles Sturt to plant three new and distinctive gardens around the Ovingham Level Crossing Removal Project site:
🍃 Native Garden – a space dedicated to native ground covers, shrubs and grasses
🦋 Butterfly Garden – to attract butterflies to the new gardens
🐝 Native Bee Garden – a garden with specific plants that will attract native bees to the area – bees that don’t sting but are a vital part of the local ecosystem across the project site
The students were invited by the Department for Infrastructure and Transport's RailCare team, which works with local volunteers to beautify stations right across the rail network.
We can’t wait to see what these new gardens will look like in the years to come!
