Pam Warhurst, Incredible Edibles

 We were very proud to host Pam Warhurst from Yorkshire. She was the keynote speaker  at a community garden hui in our school. The hui was attended by teachers, community workers, neighbourhood groups and  city council.
Pam is a TEDTalk speaker and is clear in her mission to make people rethink the place of Incredible Edibles in the community environment. Pam doesn't let red, blue, orange or green tape stop her. She believes that a few people can make a big difference.
Pam is motivational and inspirational. Her visit coincided with the 5 year commemoration of the 2011 earthquakes which brought so much damage and heartache to many in Christchurch. Our school gardens are a symbol of renewal and resilience as people put their energy into creating new and better, rather than focusing on what was gone.
He mihi to the teachers and volunteers who are looking to make the environment healthier for our tamariki and for their whanau for generations to come.

Our children sang a waiata to welcome our visitors.
