IT JUST goes to show you're never too young to learn how to do the right thing.

The C and K West Moreton Community Kindergarten at Karrabin scored a Coles Landcare Grant for its project - Recycling, Reducing and Reusing at Kindy.

Coles Riverlink manager Alan Bradshaw presented a plaque to the kindy last week.

Carolyn Symonds, director of pre-Prep at the kindy, said the project was "a great way to teach our young children about sustainability".

Ms Symonds said the Coles grant was for $930 to cover items including:

  • Compost tumbler.
  • Recycling bins.
  • Fruit trees.
  • Herb and vegetable seedlings.
  • Worm farm.
  • Bird bath.

Since 2008 the Coles Junior Landcare Garden Grants program has been providing grants of up to $1000 to schools and youth groups to help create gardens in their grounds or community, such as bush tucker gardens, water wise gardens or vegie gardens.

All schools, kindergartens, daycare centres, and youth groups are eligible to apply for a grant.

The round of grants for 2014 is now closed.
