In an effort to raise more money for our native garden and specifically raise funds to build a concrete path to allow access into the garden for all our children, we are running a potato in a bucket competition! Entries for this have now closed and with almost 80 buckets ordered the competition is going to be hot! It would seem that many inter and intra family competitions are also underway, and there have been hushed potato growing conversations in some corners of the staff room!A huge thank you to our friends Rose and Penny and the team at Bunnings Riccarton who have kindly donated not only the buckets, but also all the Jersey Benne seed potatoes!! Fantastic ! Thank you Bunnings Riccarton!
As some of the teachers have ordered a bucket for their classroom, we will be able to follow the growing progress of a plant on this blog.
