Te Whakaritorito Trust

Hi - I have been approached by Kerry Kitione who is part of the Te Whakaritorito Trust.  The Trust is interested in going to schools to help children interested in organic gardening.  Hester are you still interested in these projects?  I know we have been here before with the Sustaining HB Trust.  But to all out there in the Napier area and are interested in mentoring in this scheme you can contact Kerry at 06 8446840 or myself through this blog.  Regards Janet Chambers
