Vegetables and herbs grown in Melancholy Garden

BANORA Point High School's grounds have the new addition of paths thanks to the kind support of Bunnings and Rotary Club of Tweed Heads South.

On Wednesday the new paths were laid in the Melancholy Garden, a garden designed for the students in the special education class.

The garden has been running for two years and the students grow a number of vegetables and herbs, which are used in the school's home economics class.

A spokeswoman from the school said often the students will sell excess herbs to the staff and the money goes straight back into the garden.

Rotary member Charles Warrell said the new paths would help the wheelchair bound students get around the raised garden beds.
