Tree Planting

Ashhurst Kindergarten


At Ashhurst Kindergarten we have been very fortunate in receiving fruit trees from some of our families to support our focus on sustainable practice/being kaitiaki of Papatūānuku.

The children are enjoying the opportunity to assist in helping to prepare certain areas for planting fruit trees and re-establishing planting plots for sensory and edible herbs.  These are great learning opportunities for children to understand where fruit comes from, and how to look after these trees, so that in return they support our health and well-being with vitamins. 

We look forward to the day when we can enjoy an abundant supply of fruits to share with the children and whānau.
