Winter news from Kids Growing

Winter is upon the Waitaki, with recent snows and winds.  This has not deterred the keen Garden Club kids participating in a variety of actives.  Pictured above are some bird feeders that Waitaki Valley School pupils made. Other wintery activites has been making seed tape and planting garlic.

But the main buzz in the Kids Growing project has been the making of a documentary about Kids Growing and the various active Garden Clubs that the Waitaki Community Garden support.
Joel Dyar is the filmaker who has volunteered to make the documentary.  The children had fun being filmed and some lucky children at St Josephs got to do a bit of filming.

The film is going to be a great resource for the Kids Growing project.

In other news St Josephs have recently received a load of Pukeuri compost to top up their vege plots.  St Joseph’s continue to be inspirational selling produce after mass and giving produce to needy families through St Vincent de Paul Social Services.  Great work from Suzie their co-ordinator facilitating that.

Fenwick school have been busy, making a frost cloth tunnel house and de-constructing a pellet to make a hanging garden with Hoete.

Graham doing a great job 

Well done everyone 🙂
