We were given 60 potatoes by the Tuhuri Whenua Project 2 years ago and from that crop we have collected the seed each year to plant the following year. Some of our school families have taken some of these plants for their own gardens and we hope to be able to offer more seed to families next year after this crop.

Maori Potato Planting
The enthusiastic Enviro Group have planted Maori Potatoes behind the Year 7 block. This is our third year of planting Maori potatoes at Queenstown Primary. It is part of the Tuhuri Whenua Project to increase the supply of Maori potatoes within New Zealand.
