Potato Planting Photos

Spud in a Bucket Project

5 classrooms, Rooms 1,3,16,17 and 23 were part of the Tehuri Whenua Spud in a Bucket Project. We planted 60 potatoes in buckets with the help of Simon Williams from Wanaka Wastebusters and Ben Elms who came with the potatoes and compost and helped us plant them. The goal is to collect some of these Maori heirloom poatoes to increase New Zealand's stock of these traditional potatoes. Some of the children are looking after these plants until March when they will be ready to be harvested. A special thanks to Delta for supplying the compost.
