Around 600 sunflowers went into the garden today after a beautiful blessing and haka performed by our Epuni Children. We hosted 3 other local schools and each school planted a `ray` of our sunflower field. We thank the Project Sunshine Team at Epuni who built this garden in less than a week, and for doing a truly great job of hosting other schools from our community. We also planted heritage bean seeds with each sunflower – seed that has been passed on for years by many of our retired local gardeners.
We are grateful for the spirit of sharing and community that such a planting can bring. Many thanks to everyone who helped.
