Plant New Zealand Beautiful

Our Plant New Zeland Beautiful programmes are a great way for tamariki to develop a better understanding of the natural world and to gain hands-on learning experiences through planting, composting and growing their own food.

Kai Garden Competition

Kai Gardens is a fun and educational competition that is open to all New Zealand ECEs, kindergartens, primary and intermediate schools.

Students are given the opportunity to collaborate and design a garden that features edible and/or medicinal plants, and which is constructed using sustainable and reclaimed materials.

This is a great way for tamariki to learn how easy it is to reduce their environmental footprint by growing their own food, cooking seasonally and composting food and garden waste.

Ten designs will be chosen from all of the submissions received to win a $1,500 donation to bring their design to life and for the ongoing care of their garden as it grows.
