Woori Yallock Primary School has a new community initiative, a Grow Free Cart, where everything is FREE!

Assistant Principal, Flick Curnow said that the project is a great way for the students to learn about giving and taking from within their community.

“One of our parents came up with the idea to set up the cart and now it gets filled with goodies and emptied almost on a daily basis,” she said.

“Our theme is that you don’t have to put something in to take something out and we get all sorts put in there; fruit, vegies, jams, eggs and gardening materials.”

“The cart was supplied and organised by our Parents Association and is tended to daily by school mums who have offered their time to do that.”

“It’s totally self-sustaining for the school as the parents do all the work. During the day we see some of the kids walk over to get a piece of fruit or something to snack on so it is part of school life already,” she said.

Flick, a Seville resident who has been at the school for eight years, said “the cart is there to take what you need and give what you can, it’s as simple as that and it works.”
