The Miyawaki method is a Japanese technique for creating dense and diverse forests using native plant species. It involves planting a mixture of native species in close proximity, allowing them to grow into a self-sustaining forest ecosystem.

In Australia, this method can be used to create urban forests using local native plants, helping to promote biodiversity, reduce carbon dioxide levels and combat the effects of climate change.

The School Forect box comprises 500 tubestock of Australian native plants, based on your Schools local provenance native species that promotes habitats for insect and bird life.

By planting these native species, the School Forest project aims to create a self-sustaining ecosystem that will not only provide a habitat for a range of wildlife but also contribute to the overall health of the local environment.

The educational material accompanying the School Forest box serves as a valuable tool for teaching about the many benefits that these native plant species offer to the local ecosystem.

The material provides in-depth information about each species, including their ecological roles and how they interact with other wildlife in the area. This can range from the plants serving as food or shelter for insects and birds, to their role in maintaining soil health and water quality.

The educational material also provides information about the specific benefits each species offers, such as attracting pollinators, reducing soil erosion, or improving air quality. This material aims to help students understand the importance of preserving and protecting native plant species and the critical role they play in supporting a healthy and diverse ecosystem.
