Our school sells egg sandwiches with paresly and lettuce from our garden and chooks. Our local commercial garden have donated herbs to plant in/on our herb wall. We trade parsely and lettuces with a local restaurant in exchange for food scraps. 13 of our pupils learnt so much that they went home and planted their own gardens from seeds. We also sell our free range eggs to our community and we have sold many vegetable plants also.
We have planted the roadside verge with sunflowers, pohutokawas and beans. These are to attract the bees and native birds.
We also have many visitors who come to look at our wonderful gardens and fantastic school. We often give them guided tours and because we are so proud of our achievements the visitors walk away very impressed!
