Local supermarket and school working together to create sustainability
When Sylvia Park School got kunekune pigs, we wanted to have a sustainable feed supply. We decided to partner with our local supermarket, Pak'nSave, to take their vegetable waste and feed it to our pigs. By feeding it to our pigs, we are stopping it from going to landfill. As we use our local supermarket, we can walk to Pak'nSave and reduce our carbon footprint too. We want to live and breathe kaitiakitanga so taking care of our pigs sustainably is important to us.
