The Village Herb Farm is a hydroponic oasis on the edge of the
rainforest, at Kuranda just 40km northwest of Cairns.
Mention the word tropics and most people immediately associate that with some idyllic island with coconut trees, palms and ferns but there is so much more.
Costa visits the gardens at the Kuranda Flexible Learning Centre in Cairns. It is part of an outreach centre established by the Queensland Department of Education and Training.
Costa’s next project at the Tembeleski family’s backyard is to transform an unused corner into a playground paradise for the kids.
