The school garden councillors have taken on the school garden this year with Skyla and Tristan leading the charge. With the money left over from last year, they have bought half a trailer of Pukeuri compost and they will be looking at fundraising options for our school garden. Any spare seedlings, herb plants or cuttings will be very much appreciated.
