We are naming and poking holes in our yoghurt containers that we are going to use to put our seedlings in.

We are filling the containers with soil.

The names of the trees were Kahikatea, Griselinia, Cabbage Tree, Karaka, Lancewood and Pittosporum. We had loads of FUN!!!!!! Iola Haggarty brought the trees (that were donated to us by ARocha) down to Waitoetoe Park so we could plant them. Here are some some fabulous photos that we took:

Spring is here at last.  Dreary winter has past.  To finish our "Being Healthy" Inquiry we grew some seeds yesterday.  We grew "Luscious Lettuces," 
"Rockin' Rocket," "Perfect Parsley" and "Sensational Spinach." We hope they grow well in the special propagators which were given to us by "Plant to Plate."  We will get lots of healthy vitamins and fibre from the vegetables.
