Over the past two years we have been very fortunate to have the support of Hamilton Organic in our Backyard Garden projects. They have supplied us with large amounts of compost that we used in all our gardens and we believe this compost contributed to us being the winning school in the Hamilton City Council's pumpkin competition. Hamilton Organic also provided us with pea straw which we used over the summer holidays to minimise weed growth and further enrich our soil. From this preparation, we are able to offer our students rich experiences in 'garden to table' cooking and essential life skills. We thank Hamilton Organic for their support and our other dedicated supporters. We encourage our community to participate in Hamilton Organic's loyalty programme.
