Beaconhills staff have high hopes for this bumper crop of Queensland Blue pumpkins. Year 9 teacher and keen gardener David Knip plans to enter them for judging in the upcoming Bunyip Agricultural Show.

College gardener Tony Kimber, pictured left with David Knip, was happy to reveal his secrets to growing the big blues: “keep soil well-fertilised, use sheep pellets and cow manure and turn it over with a rotavator once a year”.

Organically-grown fruit and vegetables from Beaconhills’ gardens are used in the school canteen menus, at Little Beacons Learning Centre and donated to local charities.
