With summer continuing on unabated, Bunnings Mudgee team members headed out to region’s schools to teach the students in their own gardens. 

Kerry Miller and Gaven Bradford headed out to Lue Public School to work with the students to install a new worm garden.

The small school’s students learn plenty of valuable lessons in their garden, they cook using their own produce and are annual participants in Tree Day and often welcome Bunnings visits. 

The children took part in creating the sustainable worm farm while at the same time learning about the greener way to dispose of waste.
