Weaving flax balls with Libby.

  • Libby told us the names of the flax leaves and how to cut them. We are only allowed to cut the Grandparent and Great Grandparent leaves off the flax bush.

      Then Libby showed us how to pull the leaves apart ready for weaving.
      We had a buddy to weave with.

    It was very tricky to weave the four bits of flax.When we had finished weaving we rolled it into a flax ball.
    Then we played with the flax balls.

    When we have lunch or morning tea we have to put our scraps in the tiger worms house. When they eat heaps of scraps they make worm tea.

    This term we got two new wormeries (donated by the Otewa support group ) to put our food scraps into. They are on the deck so that we can watch what happens more easily. We will put the worm tea into bottles to sell as fertiliser.
