Our most recent social enterprise, Urban Block, provides students with the opportunity to study and engage in sustainable garden practices. They work in this enterprise to achieve various learning outcomes from their senior studies and prepare for employment or further study in the horticulture industry. As part of the Urban Block program, students grow seasonal organic produce for Tradeblock Café and the wider local community, as well as maintaining a college-wide composting system and worm farm.
The VCD team is on track to deliver Certificate II in Horticulture as one of our VET offerings in 2023.
Our tailored outdoor learning space and productive garden is currently receiving a makeover –follow along as students design and build the garden by following Urban Block on Instagram @urbanblockvcd
