Day 15 Grape vines unvieled

The is a small vineyard at my son's school and I took this photo today. The vines have been covered for sometime now but you can still see that Autumn has arrived.


  1. How wonderful to have a vinyard at school - do the children learn about plants and gardening?

  2. The school is near the Yarra Valley & we have a few families involved in the wine industry. The Vineyard & Viticulture Skills Centre was developed around 5 years ago. They started it so students in years 11 & 12 could do Food Processing/Wine Program as one of their VCE/VET units. However the other students from years 7,8 & 9 get involved in the process such as picking the grapes etc. It has been very successful & hopefully helps some of those students gain employment in the local wine industry.
