About Fruit Trees in Schools Wairarapa
Project 2018-01-04 09:57:31 +1300
As a member of the community I have been planting fruit trees in Wairarapa schools to promote local resilience and create food forests for children to access. I have so far planted a mix of mandarin and feijoa trees in 5 Carterton schools and 3 Masterton schools. The schools were:
- Carterton School;
- South End; (in collaboration with the Wairarapa Earth School)
- St. Mary's
- Lakeview School;
- Fernridge and
- Solway Primary.
I am wanting to build upon the project and plant more trees in more schools. The aim is to target low-decile schools where food equality is an issue and access to fresh fruit often isn't an option. The aim is to expand into the Masterton area.
