Home Hill High School funding for new Packing Shed

THE empty paddock (picture) at the Home Hill High School is being put to good use with funding received from Navarre Minerals Gumlu.

The funding will be used for a new packing shed, which will house cold room facilities among other items needed to establish a functioning agriculture working plot.

Water pumps, sensors and a control system will be part of the funding.

This will help to educate students with technology changes in the agricultural landscape including changes about soil and water quality.

All this is associated with sustainable environmental practices.

The skills learned could, in the future, prepare students in finding jobs in horticulture with best management practices.

This is a definite 10 out of 10 project.
