This week things got messy in Garden to Table- kids were “refreshing” our bath tub worm farm by taking out all the composting material, rinsing and then re-layering the tub with healthy layers of mulch, vege scraps, manure and other garden waste. Other teams were trimming and weeding our vege beds and getting potatoes ready for planting.
In the kitchen chefs were making kumara wedges with kale and parsley pesto followed by delicious rhubarb apple crumble with custard. A perfect winter dish for these cold nights!
