Development of the Kitchen Garden.
Hamilton East has a wonderful space behind the hall that we use as a kitchen garden. We grow produce, have some fruit trees and have a composting area.
Parts of the garden are working well but we have a whole area that is not being used and is looking messy. We would like to create an area that students can sit in as well as do gardening in. Ms Jones has an exciting vision for this part of the kitchen garden: we can build a wall that students can sit on and sketch parts of the garden.

Here are some photos of what the area looks like now

Ms Jones applied for funding and we were able to build this fantastic wall!!
Here are some photos of the process of building the wall.
