It is with great excitement that we share with you that we’ve been successful in our application for a 2021 Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant for our project, "Emmaus Eats" ELC Edible Garden. We were also successful in winning a Bee Bonus Grant, to establish our own functioning bee hive in partnership with local Adelaide apiarist, James from Bee Wild!
Emmaus Christian College Early Learning Centre is one of 1,609 primary schools and early learning centres throughout Australia receiving a Woolworths Junior Landcare grant to help grow our next generation of environmental champions.
The grants are being funded with a 10c contribution from each sale of the Woolworths Bag for Good at full price, which was launched in 2018 when Woolworths went single-use plastic bag free.
We look forward to inviting our ELC and wider Emmaus families to partner with us also. We have already begun planting a collection of vegetables and herbs and fruits and have established our own worm farm that will soon enough give us ‘growing juice’ to help our produce grow.
Our ELC children and teachers are looking forward to working and learning from this project and we’ll keep you updated on our journey!
Thanks for sharing in our excitement with us,
The Emmaus Early Learning Centre
