Project Pictures:

Below is a collection of pictures taken when the Honorable Sir Barry Curtis visited the Sutton Park Primary School to see and learn what the students are doing in the garden. Sutton Park School and Dale Harvey were about to be awarded concurrent Environmental Initiative Awards and Grants from the Auckland Regional Council for their successful efforts. This would propel the garden project to new heights that later would allow them to be the only garden ever selected to feature in the prestigious Trinity Garden Festival. Their success also featured in a special documentary appearing on NHK (Japanese National Television) applauding their efforts as leading the 'Green Revolution' and usingtheir  new 'Green Technology'. This NHK documentary has since inspired a botanical 'Green Revolution' in Japan and brought gardening into Japanese classrooms to 'grow a Green Generation' that will 'lead the way' toward an environmentally sophisticated Japanese Society.
