The Year 5 and 6 Sustainable Elective have continued to develop their understanding of what Kai, Community and Sustainability means to them.  Through this learning, they are working in teams to grow vegetables for our school and community. We have five vegetable gardens and a growing orchard.  At the moment, we have carrots, celery and cauliflower growing and lemons ready to pick.  Some of the veggies won't be ready to eat by the end of our study, so we have been taste testing too.  We are very concerned about not wasting excess food, so we have come up with a plan.  Keep an eye
out for our creative plan.


  1. Looks like you are all having lots of fun in this elective. Your yoghurt looks yummy. I hope the chickens don't get into your vegie gardens because they just LOVE vegies.
    I can't wait to see the end result.

    PS: I like yoghurt..... hint, hint.

  2. Mmmm I was wondering what the yummy looking white stuff was. It looks like you are having so much fun in this elective. The garden looks so tidy! I think I need some people to come round to my house and help tidy mine!

    1. We were lucky enough to have Greek Lemon Yoghurt mousse, made from lemons out of our garden. It really was yummy.
