Little Tamariki in the Community Garden

4th Jan 2024

Little Tamariki Montessori Preschool asked if they could be involved in a project at the community garden. We made a plan for the children to plant out the tee-pee with a modified version of 3 sister planting: Sunflowers instead of corn, beans and squash (in this case, kamokamo).The planting plan creates a special space where the children and the community can visit and enjoy, while providing a fun learning environment for the children.

So far, the tamariki have come and planted the seeds, then returned to plant the seedlings into the garden. They will come back to harves the beans, kamokamo and sunflowers, completing the cycle of sowing, growing, caring and harvesting.

We love opportunities to work with our community to support hands on learning - if you have any Community Garden questions, get in touch with our guru Chloe on 027 443 4843.
