The children at Fairview Park Kindergarten in Rotorua grew lots of lovely potatoes this spring and celebrated by cooking these on an open fire as hot chips! Everyone loved these and they were delicious.The children loved digging them up and it became like a treasure hunt for potatoes.
It was great to see everyone experience the produce that was grown in the kindy garden and learn how if you plant food you can cook it and eat it to feed and look after yourselves from a very small area of soil. This is one of the best ways we can look after our growing bodies by feeding it with healthy nutritional food that will help us grow big and strong. It will also help our planet by knowing how to grow our own food so when we are bigger we know how to care for ourselves and others and use our space on our planet so there is enough for all.
