Harvesting seed

Hello sunshiny friends. A wee update on what we have been up to since our harvest. The children have been tackling the task of stripping the heads of seeds and will soon begin to pack them up to send out. It’s a huge task, and we have produced enough seed to send to every NZ school… should they want it! The little ones have been using the trays of drying seed as a sensory exercise… they feel magic to run your hands through and are great for maths and counting. The big seniors had the wonderful task of ripping out the remains of the field, which was really tough work for our farmers! The result is a mountain of compost ready to feed next season’s efforts. Please get in touch if you would like to pre-order seed. We ask for a small koha to cover postage costs. This project remains a gift from our community to the bees and all other children of NZ.
