At Bridge House we are committed to sustainable campus practices and teaching our students about environmental stewardship. Our Garden Farm is situated in the centre of the Campus where a vegetable and fruit garden serves as an outdoor extension of our classrooms. The Garden Farm provides vegetables for our tuckshops and dining rooms and for various community feeding programmes.
In our Garden Farm, students become more aware of their environment and learn about sustainable living and the practice of growing their own food. They learn about the impact their actions have on the environment.
The wider classroom experience of working in the Garden Farm, weeding, planting and harvesting, takes place both in club time and after school. Service is an integral part of our wider classroom experience and the garden farm gives our students the opportunity of being of service to their school and their community. Soup kitchens in the community are supplied with vegetables from the garden.
