September 2015 Recipients
The Invercargill Early Learning Centre was granted $1,435 to completely revamp their outdoor space by creating a new grass area, vegetable garden and worm farm.
The aim of the project is to educate the children about sustainably and the environment, and foster Kawenga (responsibility for our living world). They will gain the knowledge and skills to care for nature and themselves by harvesting produce and learning how to keep their bodies healthy.
Thanks to the Mazda Foundation grant the children can be more involved in outdoor morning and afternoon teas, storytelling, music sessions, and group games, in a fantastic outdoor learning environment.
