Kaiapoi Food Forest Trip

Amber Wing —

Room 14 and 15 had an amazing trip to the Kaiapoi Food Forest on Wednesday 27th November.

Room 14 and 15 have been busy planting and germinating seeds so that we could take them to the Food Forest to plant. While we were there we had an informative talk from Brent (Chairperson). He is an amazing man who has transformed some of the Red Zone land in Kaiapoi, into a sustainable Food Forest for all members of the surrounding communities to enjoy. Students, Teachers and Parents alike, all learnt many things that we had not known about plants. We then shared some morning tea before finding a suitable place in the forest to plant our seedlings. A quick scavenger hunt and then we jumped back into our cars to headed back to school. Thanks to the many parents who came along and supported us on the day. Three hours certainly sped past and most students left wanting to go back again. Thanks again to the Kaiapoi Food Forest and especially Brent.
