Change the world: Grow your own vegetables.

On World Environment Day, all students and staff of my school, Pt Chevalier School, wore green
and donated gold coins to be used to buy construction material for the planned bantam coop we are going to build later on this year. This is great, we not only have a vegetable and fruit garden, we are going to have chicken. The students will love it.

We all played our part in school sustainably and having a waste free lunch. We came first for the “Greenest Group” award run through Auckland City Council.

.."It was clear that a lot of effort went into the event and the focus was on making sustainable changes. The judges were very impressed. Councillor Lister would like to come to an assembly next term to present the book and tree prize".

The photo shows some of our colourful veges. We are in partners with WWF. We can not sell our produce. All the children are welcomed to harvest the vegetables when they are ready. They don't have to be members of the enviro club who grow them.
