Students at Murwillumbah TAFE Certificate III in Employment and Training are certainly growing their skills – and a great deal more in the campus courtyard garden. ‘Sustainability is now seen as an important employability skill in the workplace and a benefit that can also be carried through to our home environment,’ according to teacher Martha Turner. ‘The garden project has increased their confidence and promoted a positive and productive team environment,’ says head teacher Brendan McKenna.
Support The Echo
Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.
Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
