Grab your spade, put on your favourite gummies and dig it! Paekākāriki's biggest plant party is back - come and drink the community spirit!

Labour Day is the traditional time to plant up the summer garden and the school has thousands of summer vegetable seedlings, perennials, flowers and herbs, shrubs and natives - all tried and true in local conditions. The focus is on local heirlooms (like Bridey’s Black Cherry tomatoes), companion flowers and sand-friendly garden plants.

Deliveries: Haven’t got a car or prefer not to drive? Ride your bike and get the local Scouts to deliver your purchases for a small fee.

Order: Fertilisers Rok Solid, sheep poo & neem powder.

Don’t eat breakfast! Come straight down to the school for a cup of coffee, bacon butty or vegetarian fritter.

Troubleshoot with our experienced gardeners Hannah Zwartz and Tina Pope on hand to share their knowledge.

Be entertained by local talent and be inspired by the school’s substantial garden.

Listen to the Radio! Our School Radio Club will be hosting a Paekakariki FM open day and our team of amazing young radio stars will be welcoming visitors to the station and broadcasting live shows all morning.

All proceeds go towards kapahaka, wananga and school garden programmes.
