Go Gardening - - Kids Go Gardening -

Te Atatu Penin­sula young green thumb, Jack Hughes, has won the Yates Bud­ding Young Gar­dener 2018 ti­tle as part of the na­tion­wide search for NZ’s most pas­sion­ate kid gar­dener.

Seven year old Jack loves grow­ing beanstalks, of course!

“I like gar­den­ing with my dad be­cause he teaches me how to grow things. And I re­ally like grow­ing beanstalks be­cause my name is Jack! They also make a re­ally good jun­gle to play in.”

A tip from Jack’s Dad is:

“It has been won­der­ful for en­cour­ag­ing him to eat his greens – ev­ery­thing he grows gets eaten which wouldn’t be the case if we bought a bunch of ve­g­ies from the su­per­mar­ket!”
