Botanic Gardens

Last week, we visited the Botanic Gardens.

We loved walking through the secret path! We were feeling surprised, scared, excited, silly, happy, amazing, fun, good and ka pai as we went through it! We learnt lots about how to plant a seed, what it needs to grow into a healthy plant, and how to take care of our plants. We saw the worm farm and some worms, and what to put and not to put into a worm farm...just like we learn at school! 
We hope you enjoy the slideshow!
