What Can We Plant Into?

Together with the children, we thought about the types of things we could plant into. We cut things out of magazines and brainstormed ideas for our portable garden!

The call then went out to our whaanau for creative containers for our garden and WOW what a great response we have. Here are some of the things that our families brought to plant in!

One of the grandmother's brought this already made for us!

Next step:
Planting into those awesome containers!

The PORTable Garden Project

We have entered in the Tui School Garden Challenge by Tui and Mitre 10 Mega!

We are currently in a temporary kindergarten building as we are lucky enough to have a new building being built to replace our old one!

We decided to make a portable garden with the children because we will not be here long!

We can take our portable garden with us.

We use sustainable practises in our garden.

We utilise our guinea pigs ‘output’ and our worm farm ‘juice’ as well, we in turn will be sharing our produce with them.

We will be watering with watering cans and will mulch where possible.

Watch this space for our progression of our portable garden!
