Developing and Sustain the School Vegetable Gardens


In 2011 the Huia Range School Board of Trustees appproved a proposal to develop the school playing field.  The BOT agreed to incorporate raised vegetables gardens as part of the field development.

In January 2012, our back field
 was ploughed up and re-sown.

part of the field was made into an all weather running track, 

with skills activity stations at regular intervals.

One area was set aside to develop a series

 of raised vegetable gardens.

The grant from Eastern and Central also allowed 

up to purchase a tank to water the garden during summer.
