This week we danced to the sweet tunes of MC Babysteppers, we dipped candles, we ate sweet food cooked by Rachel Priestley, and we face-painted and ate ice cream from CommonSense Organics. We celebrated our Christmas party in style with our hard-working little farmers at Epuni School!
Julia has written a ‘thank you’ list over on our Facebook page here, where you can also see more pictures from the day’s events.
Here are a few other photos from our AWESOME Christmas party:
Rachel Priestley from Prodigal Daughter prepared 25kg of potatoes, 10kg of pork, 16 chickens and fed everyone an incredible meal.
Jacqui and Sue, the green forest angels from CommonSense Organics in Lower Hutt, donated ice cream for each of the children. I’ve never seen ice cream disappear so quickly before!
Sue from SuperVery generously gave us all of these beautiful Winnie-the-Pooh badges that she offered as a koha in return for sunflower seeds. We handed them out to all of the Epuni School children as an early Christmas gift:
Our farmers had sunflowers and other beautiful motifs painted on their faces:
And they dipped candles and made stunning colourful Christmas gifts, which they could take home.
Our feast featured in the DomPost the next day too. Thanks again to everyone who helped make this day super special!
Wishing everyone a very sunshiney Christmas season – we’ll be back in the New Year with more sunflower updates, and hopefully lots more photos that show how everyone’s sunflowers are growing.
