Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival

Garden & Art Trail

Te Manawa o Papamoa School Garden

Welcome to a garden crafted lovingly and carefully by school children and helpers. Here you will see a working organic food garden which is grown and maintained by students. Throughout the year every student has an opportunity to participate with gardening and learn about the life cycle of plants from seed sowing through to seed saving. We endeavour to follow the no dig principles with a focus on soil health and creating biodiversity.
