Mud kitchen in action

This week members of the MenShed team were invited for morning tea at Kids First – a pre school located at Hawea Flat.

Recently the team delivered a second mud kitchen for use by the kids as play equipment.

The two mud kitchens (one with a stove!) followed a couple of built up gardens where today the children are growing vegetables along with wooden christmass decorations for the kids to paint and take home.

Mud Kitchen made at the Wānaka Community Workshop for KidsFirst Kindergarten

Our visit to Kids First was our first opportunity to see the projects “in action”. It was great, almost as good as the chocolate brownies the kids helped to bake.

The Wanaka Community Workshop is delighted we can make a difference while also reusing and upcycling timber and materials which would otherwise go to waste.
