There may be a new face at the Waitaki Community Gardens but the vision to educate the community is still the same.
Following the resignation of Annie Beattie, teacher Steve Newnham was appointed as the new co-ordinator at the gardens and has now been there for just over a month.
“One of the ways to educate anybody is to get them to a site like this and get them digging in the soil or just a breath of fresh air and taking some time out and they will find their own way,” he said.
