A chapter ends | Farewell our snack garden guru!

Christian is leaving!  We are so sad but so happy he has spent time with us – in fact he’s been with us since 2011! – working on our Primary School Snack Garden Project.

He has regularly visited all our participating Primary Schools teaching all things veggie garden – worms, mulching, seed raising. The staff and students adore him.

We wish him and his family all the best in their new adventures down South.
