Vertical garden cuts plastic waste and sprouts success
Carey Baptist College in Armadale has taken out the top spot in Young Re-inventor of the Year 2015 with their invention of a vertical garden made out of milk cartons from the school café.
Conceived and constructed by year 11 sustainability students, the edible wall has transformed a bare space into a fresh, green productive garden. The herbs have already been used by food technology students and the garden has been irrigated to survive the long hot summer.
Carey Baptist College were awarded a $1500 sustainability prize pack that will help their school continue along their sustainability journey.
Please see below for a photo gallery of the edible wall and other category finalists.
