Clifton School – Room 7 – 8th August 2018

It was a few weeks ago now but our session with Room 7 was a fun one! I brought along a hungry bin worm farm to donate to Clifton School thanks to some funding we received from Fonterra’s Grass Root Fund. It was fun watching everyone work together to put it together and also get it started with a bed ans some food for the worms. I hope that you are finding it easy to wheel around the school and collect scraps in. Remember, not to much citrus peeling and no cooked food! I would love to see some photo updates 🙂 We managed to get the gardens well planted up and I hope you still have plans to have a share table for you community when all the produce it ready. Here is a picture of the share table at Longburn School.

Most of you have had a Plant to Plate Aotearoa session before and it was nice to see you remembered lots.  The meal you cook was delicious and it was great to see awesome table manners and everyone having a try of the food.

We really enjoyed our morning with you room 7 and we look forward to coming back to Clifton School in the future.

Happy Gardening everyone, Jacinda

GARDENING TIP OF THE DAY…

Potatoes are an easy vegetable for beginners and they are a fantastic first crop in new soil as the roots and tubers break it up and make it easier to dig in the future. July/August is a good time to start sprouting your potatoes ready for planting in September. It’s a great activity for kids to do!

GARDEN ACTIVITY OF THE DAY…

Grow an Avocado tree.
