Public Meeting: Food for a Future: Organic Orchards and Vegetable Gardens in schools

Why: To provide healthy local organic food for children and an opportunity for children to learn how to grow their own food

What: I aim to emulate Ecomatters' successful organic garden pilot program that has helped several Waitakere City schools develop and maintain gardens and orchards by running a similar scheme in Mt. Albert and surrounding suburbs. Waterview school and Owairaka school have already expressed interest in being involved.
All going well, I will then look to expand the scheme to other parts of Auckland.

Who should come: anyone who's keen to help - teachers, parents, anyone with knowledge of organic gardening and/or orchards who is keen to share
it with teachers and students, anyone who's already involved in school gardens who would like to share expertise and anyone who's good at
fundraising (we need money for trees, garden tools etc.)
