Gin Gin State School - Queensland

Sunday February 11 2007, saw  a fantastic turnout of Gin Gin State School teachers, parents,  students, and people from the wider Gin Gin community.

The reason?

A working Bee to get the Gin Gin State School Wicking Bed  Project up and running.

The Wicking Bed Project

Below is a pictorial of the progress of the Gin Gin State School Wicking Bed Project that will hopefully prove itself to be a workable pilot for others to follow.

Colin Austin's Wicking Bed Technologies utilised in this project have also been incorporated into the Easy Grow System. See easygrowvegetables.com for plans and more information.
