Edible garden award win
Rhubarb crumble, cauliflower with cheese, or silverbeet pie – how many recipes can you think of to whip up from Kidsfirst MacFarlane Park’s prize winning fruit and vegetable patch? There's always something to celebrate about our big backyards at kindergarten.
FIND OUT WHY WE'RE JUST BETTER BECAUSE...
Kidsfirst MacFarlane Park tamariki and whānau help tend tomatoes, cauliflower, brocolli, rhubarb, celery, silverbeet, apples, black boy peaches and an array of herbs that flourish in both their kindy garden and down at the local community garden.
The awards celebrate local communities who are passionate about their gardens and edible harvests.
Using these tasty treasures from the earth, we can choose from many healthy morning tea options to mix and bake, or provide some of what we’ve grown to whānau. This way we all learn even more about healthy hearts, 5+ a day, and how we can help ourselves to feel upbeat and energised using the vitamins and minerals in these raw ingredients.
Our outdoor spaces contribute so much to our understanding and respect for the NZ environment, mother nature, and sense of self, health and well-being.
