#littlegarden!

On Tuesday Rata class got to start on our little gardens. If you don't know what a little garden is well... it is a promotion from New World. Our school got sent a pack of seeds, dirt biscuits, instructions, and a little container to grow the plants. 

It was so cool to see all of the different types of vegetables and herbs, some of which we had never heard of before! 

Then it was our mission to find out some tips for our plants. Where they like to grow, how much water we can give and interesting facts. The students have posted these to their blogs - you can have a look down the right hand side of this blog. 

There was one interesting thing we have thought about our plants. We need to babysit them over the holidays! How would you do this? 
Here are some images of our plants... 



We can not wait to eat them later in the year!!!

  1. Oh my goodness. I absolutely love these photos of you as you prepare to grow your garden. We did this in Rimu Class too and loved it. I now shop at New World to try to get more because lots of Rimu Class kids have taken their seeds home. It is so exciting seeing seeds become plants.

  9. Hi Rata hub, I like those little garden things they are definitely the best thing that New World have gave us. At my house we have the whole set plus lots of extras. It is a good idea to do the on plastic plates. Do you have the whole set? Tino pai tau mahi (good work).
