ENTHUSIASM for gardening has spread across Serviceton South State School as young students learn 'you reap what you grow'.
Since the end of last year, the school has sprouted a new generation of gardeners through its community garden project.
The initiative sees students develop their horticulture skills by tending gardens during their lunch breaks.
Under the supervision of teacher aide and Garden Club operator Zoltan Tuskes, the students have successfully grown more than a dozen vegetable plants.
Mr Tuskes, who built the garden and its enclosure, said the project was a great way for students to be a part of something special at the school.
"As soon as the lunch bell rings, students race to the garden to see how it is progressing," he said.
"Even during wet weather, they still want to get involved."
Year 7 student and member of the Garden Club Caitlyn Andrews-Young said the experience was a lot of fun.
"It's great learning about new plants and seeing the vegetables grow as they get ready for harvesting," the 12-year-old said.
The produce of the garden will be harvested and given to families in the community and used in the school's canteen.
