Rural Women New Zealand (RWNZ) is teaming up with Farmlands to provide gardening grants to six North Island rural primary schools.

Liz Evans – president of charitable organisation, RWNZ – says the winning schools will receive $2000 ‘Grow Your Own’ grants to be used to set up, or further develop, rural school gardens or orchards.
 
“There’s a magic about planting seeds and growing your own fruit and vegies,” she says, “We’re keen to encourage children to learn the skills for what can become an enjoyable hobby and a way of providing healthy food for families.”

Schools will also receive a copy of A Good Harvest – Recipes from the Gardens of Rural Women New Zealand, as well as gardening equipment, soil nutrients and seeds.
