Project Based Schools Program

Here at ECOSS we have started project based schools program.  Schools come one day per week for a term, and work alongside our Youth Worker Geoff Lawrence, to undertake earth building and other projects.

Currently we have:  

CIRE Services Year 9 students planting and implementing our Biofiltration System.  We received a grant from Melbourne Waters- Rural Land Program, and have been kindly donated wetland plants from Australian Ecosystems for this project.
