At Central Kids Kihikihi Kindergarten, children are active participants in environmental projects where shared decision making empowers children to develop their capacity for life long learning to care for the environment.
Our sustainable gardens have continued to flourish and the children have demonstrated such delight in preparing the gardens for planting, managing pest control, planning seasonal plantings according to the lunar calendar and displaying guardianship for nurturing Papatūānuku. In return we are now reaping the rewards of our mahi as fresh, healthy, sustaining vegetables become ready for the picking.
Our season’s bounty is placed in our ‘bring and share’ box ready to be collected, shared and enjoyed by our families and friends. Harvesting is an exciting time!
