Wai-ora Trust Community Gardens is a Charitable Trust based near the airport, about a 10 min drive from the Unlimited campus, actively involved in supporting the community since 1981. The Trust is looking for interested school groups to ‘adopt’ a pellet garden for the summer with the aim of “connecting children and local schools to food and the earth in a sustainable way”. I have been a volunteer at the gardens since January and would love to support a group of interested students (and/or adults) in this great opportunity to be part of something bigger than ourselves.
We will travel to Wai-Ora Gardens every Friday from 10am to lunch time, and tend our garden. (I can take 6 students in my car. If more are interested, we would need extra adult/transport support)
· $10 per student to go towards the $100 contribution
· Creative energy – we can decorate our gardens with scarecrows, mosaics, paint, bug hotels, have a themed garden, anything we like really
· End of season Celebratory shared lunch at Wai-ora Gardens
· ‘Garden Angel’ support during Dec / Jan holidays to look after gardens (watering etc)
