After the big wind last week the sunflowers had begun to die off and today we were able to harvest the flower heads to retrieve the seeds. We had lots of keen helpers collecting the heads, pulling out the big plants and fixing up the garden so that the remaining flowers could carry on growing. Oskar was amazing and determinedly followed through the process from the start to finish. He is a very passionate gardener and shared lots of stories about what he does in the garden at home with Mum.
The tamariki then helped carry the dead plants to the compost, watered the rest of our gardens and packed away all the garden tools. They are amazing young gardeners!
