GARDENING Australia’s Costa Georgiadis visited Surfside Primary School last Friday, much to the delight of students, who created “worm hats” for the occasion.
“They are the best worm hats I’ve ever seen!” Costa told hundreds of excited students at a special assembly.
“I’ve never seen worm hats so that’s probably why they are so good.”
Earlier that morning the school captains “were pumped” to show their kitchen garden to Costa, who was quite impressed.
“It’s not just some kumbaya garden with a few herbs to show the kids – this is the Real McCoy!
“And they were showing me around with a real understanding of it.”
The ABC presenter and environmentalist praised the work of the Ocean Grove Rotary Club and other community groups in creating the garden.
“It’s an amazing garden with a great connection to local groups,” he said.
“All the fruit trees are at a point where they are creating viable produce.”
Costa took questions at the assembly on everything from seaweed, maggots and compost, to how to grow carrots worthy of “Bugs Bunny”.
The school is one of four Costa toured that day, as part of Geelong Council’s Sustainable Living Festival.
