The children at BestStart Wairakei are learning all about sustainability. One of our grandfathers made us three wooden planter boxes which we have planted gardens in.  We are encouraging the children to take responsibility for growing their own food to include in their morning and afternoon kai. 

We are going to make one of the planters into a community garden. Located in the carpark, we will invite the community to plant and share the produce. We are very lucky to have Anita one of our regular relievers working with us on this project. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about gardening and sustainability and the tamariki are learning so much from her.
