VSV becomes greener


Virtual School Victoria’s gardener, Emily, has introduced some new initiatives to make VSV even greener.

Emily has introduced onsite composting to improve the soil and plant quality in and around the school grounds.

Composting is a simple process by which organic matter, such as leaves and food scraps, decomposes into soil. This enriches soil and helps it retain water.

Emily has also ramped up the worm farm at VSV. The worms mostly eat organic food matter, water, leaves and grass clippings. They turn this organic debris into a rich fertiliser that provides important nutrients to help the VSV garden bloom.
