It rained and drizzled and rained again on Saturday when we had the working bee planned. But as it's Auckland ( and it rains anyway) and we had a trailer load of topsoil to get off the donated trailer we went ahead and worked. We are building a native garden behind the kindergarten as inspiration to be viewed through our art room windows.
So we dug and leveled and prepared the site under Stephanie's expert guidance. We have a plan designed by MIT landscape gardening students and are working to that.
It is starting to look like good growing for ferns and pungas, cabbage trees and other natives and we are excited it is beginning to take shape.
Thanks to our dedicated workers who came in the rain. It was a muddy job but they just got on and did it!
