We did the first planting of the MBS Orchard at Mairangi Bay School on Sept 1!

Thank you to all who helped out with the first planting of the MBS orchard on Sept 1.

Creating a delicious resource for our school is fun and relaxing when there are so many hands and hearts!

juicer apparatus improvisations


Tracey and Chris' juicing station at Mairangi Arts Centre was appropriated by many and turned into a toolkit for improvising weird juicing machines over the school holidays!


hanging garden


Amy introduced us to the wonders of cut-up wine bottle self-watering hanging gardens as part of our ongoing investigations into a more edible Mairangi Bay...


are you interested in the Mairangi Orchard?

It's a free orchard scattered around our neighbourhood, made up of existing fruit trees in private gardens and public spaces. Excess fruit is used in free workshops to make delicious and useful treats for all.

DIY microgreen nursery for small spaces

Amy introduced us to the powers of this mysterious microgreen growing machine as part of our investigations into a more edible Mairangi Bay

kawakawa & orange experiment

happened at Mairangi Arts Centre on 13 (Tues) June, Morning-Tea Time.

we took a chance on pleasure and taste, making kawakawa-infused oranges, and a peel + kawakawa tea using resources from the neighbourhood.

harvest


Many people kept anonymously replenishing our stock of seasonal citrus from local private gardens but when we ran low we took out this weird handmade "wheelbarrow" made of stuff scavanged from "around here".
