It’s been such a treat working with Tenneccee, Chiffona and Camryn; three awesome students at LRCS who were keen for after school and weekend work and we were thrilled to give them the opportunity to be part of THE Hungry Spirit, learn some new skills and of course earn some extra spending (or saving) money!!
Cleaning up THE Hungry Spirit space from weeds that had sprung up after all the rain we’ve been having was the first priority and then we wanted to create an area for kids, somewhere they could play, explore…so Tenneccee and Chiffona came up with the idea of a maze.
We had a heap of rocks in a pile on the site so while Rebel moved them in the wheelbarrow, the girls marked out and laid out the maze!
It took about an hour with everyone focused!
We had a big vacant spot in the middle where the old Dig In fire pit was, so decided that we could put a pile of opal dirt and tailings there and kids could spend time sorting through looking for opal!
Along the fenceline we plan to plant fruit vines so that there will be more shade on the maze and also provide delicious fruit for years to come; of course that will happen after the summer has finished!
It’s nice and shady on the maze until about 11am, so it will be a lovely early morning spot to bring kids, enjoy an organic cup of tea or coffee or cold drink and a treat while the kids play safely and use their imagination in nature!
And, as you can see from the picture below, Tennecceee and Chiffona are pretty pleased with their work, as they should be!
