Sculpture walk signposts school garden’s delights
REMINISCENT of Bondi's famed Sculptures By the Sea exhibition, the budding artists at Sawtell Public School have created a sculpture walk in their Community Garden.
The Gugumbal Sculpture Trail provides education about the garden and what it can provide - other than good food.
Funded partly through the CHCC Small Arts Grant, with $1500 towards materials, a further $150 was provided by the school for materials; $250 was provided by the school's P&C Committee towards interpretive signage; and $220 by Carol Malcolm to cover a budget shortfall.
It was a project completed with the community spirit, with a raft of volunteers contributing 193 hours in addition to the 146 hours put in by Sawtell Public School students, plus 42 hours put in by Toormina High School students.
The high school also contributed with ceramic firing, while CHCC salvaged a fallen gum tree to be used for sculptural timber. Saltwater Freshwater also provided input to 'Connections to Country'.
