Thank you to everyone who visited our gardens and attended our events for the 2021 Taranaki Garden Festival.

15. Ōmata School

1 Holloway Road, Omata
The Ōmata school orchard began in 2017 & was implemented by the children, staff & community. This previously barren area is now a dynamic & sustainable food forest with fruit trees, berries, vines, veggie beds, support plants and more. Children learn about food from the ground to the table, whilst having a space to relax, enjoy & play. The garden beds & seating is made from sacks of soil, tied together, then cemented which is a unique feature to see.
