Last year the students of Tangaroa College in Otara, South Auckland, started developing a school vege garden which is now producing at least 70 different varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs.
The garden's produce has been used to teach students how to cook.
Students have been involved in planting and harvesting, and the garden continues to expand - most recent additions include a beehive in May and the planting of traditional Maori and Pacific medicinal plants in September.
A market day is planned for the 1st of December so that the students can share the garden's fresh and organic produce with the community.
The garden's Poupou (or Maori Carving) will be unveiled and blessed at 7am.
The Poupou has been carved by the school's pupils under the guidance of carvers Wiremu Theodore, Mason Tihema and Master Carver Chris Wade.
The garden's produce will also be on sale.
