Well exciting thngs are afoot. Firstly, I can’t remember if I told you that we are being donated another 20 trees through the hard efforts of Judith from the Mount Eden Village People. They have already obtained local board funding for many fruit trees around our area including other schools and kindys and have already given us 3 trees, but another 20 to come is fantastic. We have not made any decisions yet and most likely new trees will be planted next year as some of the trees we wanted were sold out and the planting would have been a little too late. So a BIG thanks to Judith who is a great advocate for our school also. She speaks highly of us and our gardening efforts to anyone who will listen. Take a look at her website. Judith and her group are making amazing changes over in Mt Eden.

The next exciting thing is that we are about to apply to become a funded school on the Garden To Table programme. Take a look at their website for more information. We have been in contact with the trust for the last couple of years as we have watched them run 3 pilot schools through the programme and in June they had a group of interested people visiting 2 of the schools. Kusam and I went to Meadowbank Primary and East Tamaki Primary and were blown away by the amazing vegetable gardens and cooking facilities that have been developed at these schools and to see how much the kids loved being part of it.  It would be fantastic to see this happen at Edendale. The application form arrived yesterday and I will let you know how we get on. In the meantime, here are some photos from those schools:
