Our Gardening Programme for Waitaki Schools

We are available for school visits every Wednesday morning between 9am-12 noon. We generally recommend an hour visit for a group to complete 3-4 different activities. 

Prices are calculated based on the number of activities, location and number of parent/ teacher helpers. 

Simply complete the request form below and we'll be in touch to discuss costs and time-frames that will work for you.
