Extended Seasonal Greetings Although the year is drawing to a close, it is worth noting…
My Vege Wall won runner-up in the Young Enterprise Award Regional finals last week. “My Vege Wall” is a Young Enterprise project designed for vertical building dwellers who want to maintain a garden in a smaller footprint area such as an apartment. Mikayla and Helena worked through many technical challenges to solve their problem of how to grow an apartment garden. Mikayla also won the Regional Entrepreneur Young Enterprise award for West Auckland.
