OKE dokey

Another amazing garden built by the OKE squad, our phenomenal volunteers and some very special guests - all for the gorgeous kids at Weymouth Primary. For someone with a black thumb, I think I'm learning as much as they kids are about gardening and growing your own food! (If only I could get my own garden in order!!) πŸ˜‚ ANYHOO....We're now in fundraising mode to get 2 more schools done this year, so if you're keen to be involved, get in touch!! πŸ“žπŸ“±πŸ“ πŸ“©πŸŒ±πŸ₯•πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŒΎπŸ₯πŸ”¨#callme #growingmightykids #everylittlebithelps #lifeskills #learningoutsidetheclassroom #somuchmulch #auckland #southauckland #warriors #howmanywarriorsdoesittaketo #getoutside #earthday #growyourown #charity #okecharity

Yes chef!

For a small city, Napier sure has some amazing places to eat/drink! Lucky to get a booking last night at Bistronomy, and even better, at the Chef's bar. Awesome to see the chef James Beck in action...everything we ordered was top notch - esp the Bluff oyster with rockmelon granita, and the pork skin starters! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ½πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ³ #chefstable #hawkesbay #napier #napiereats #hawkesbayeats #bestseatinthehouse #bistronomy
