We have been awarded a Carterton District Council Creative Communities grant to begin work on our Food Forest Sculpture trail in the outdoor classroom at South End School in Carterton

South End School students will work with a local artist who specialises in transforming natural (wood and stone) recycled and repurposed items into art by burning or etching. Students will design a sculpture trail that leads visitors around the garden classroom to discover different areas such as the food forest, bug hotel and composting zones.

local Artists Ngaire and Tom from Burnt offering and Formed by hand will work together with students to design and build the sculpture trail, the trail will be presented to the public in March 2020


Artwork will label plants and trees, depict native wildlife and provide an element of surprise as visitors will have to search for the next clue/sculpture to find their way around the garden trail.

The project will be student led working with two local artists as expert mentors.
