Ground cover seeded at community food forest

Last week, we gathered at the end of the school day, and had some children help spread the seed for the Waiheke Food Forest. We’d done two big working bees recently, to prepare the ground and spread the 30CuM of mulch around the five year old trees. Here’s the video showing the progress of this site, and it’s transition from an orchard to a food forest. At 2m:40s you can see the children getting involved.

Then just five days later, the seeds were popping up.
