Gardening is the latest craze at The Basin's Christadelphian Heritage College this year. Aidan, 7, and Charlotte, 8 are members of the school's gardening club which has doubled in numbers this year.
Principal Jon Fry said the group grew tomatoes, pumpkins and carrots over the summer, and were hoping to plant fruit trees this year.
"They are learning to appreciate the plants, and the care and patience that is involved," he said.
More than 20 pupils are taking part. Due to the increased numbers, the school is asking for donations of gardening tools and seeds. Anyone who can help is asked to call 9739 8126. Picture: Rob Carew
