STUDENTS from Warwick State High School worked alongside community volunteers on Saturday to build a bush tucker garden ahead of their NAIDOC Week celebrations.

Warwick State High School teacher Sandy Brown said the garden would serve many purposes.

"It is to become an outdoor classroom," she said.

"There will be a lot of bush tucker and indigenous plants in the garden.

"Every plant will have a purpose.

"We are also putting some native bees up in the tree."

Environmental committee leader Erin Walker came up with the idea for the project.

"We spoke to the student council and decided we needed something to create awareness about the environment," she said.

"It will be an outdoor classroom and students will be able to learn about all the native plants."

Ms Brown said the project was only possible because of the generous donations from the community.

"The Condamine Alliance made a great donation," she said.

"And the mulch was donated by the Southern Downs Regional Council."
