As well as exploring local tikanga into cultivation, harvesting, insecticides/pesticides, propagation and storage. Where the students spend time producing produce for our community while gaining valuable skills such as sowing seeds, planting out, thinning, taking cuttings, grafting, pruning, harvesting and storing.
