SCHOOL students from Bingara will get their hands really dirty in the coming weeks, following a State Government grant to allow them to start planting out a new native bush tucker garden at the school.

Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall delivered news of $3,500 in funding to the Bingara Central School - with the money coming from a NSW Government Environmental trust program.

“The grant will go towards buying seedlings and plants for a new dedicated bush tucker area in The Living Classroom green space just outside Bingara,” Mr Marshall said.

“So besides getting lessons in environmental science the students will have some practical work in landscaping and cultural and culinary experiments too,” he said.
