This is a question from  Room 5 from Raumati South School on the Kapiti Coast...
Hi Opua School! We learnt so much from your very informative report about cooking your quiche. We are now looking at your story about the strawberries and we are interested in knowing about what the green cone system is, as seen in your photo... What is it?

We dug a hole and placed the 'basket' down in the dirt which allows the juices from the composting vegetation to seep into the earth and the holes in the basket lets in good bugs and wormies.
We put our food scraps and other vegetation in the cone. The food scraps are actually shared between the chooks, worm farms and the Green Cone system.
The strawberries we planted are looking really bonny and there is to be a tower of peas surrounding the greencone itself. The soil is very nutrient rich around this area of the garden.

Thanks for your question!
