Recreate NZ

Recreate NZ is a non-profit organisation that supports young people with intellectual disabilities across Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Christchurch. Their MOXIE programme is designed to bridge the gap between school and employment, providing young people with experiential learning and work skills development.

As part of the MOXIE programme, the young people run an orchard, growing fruit and learning new skills around gardening and horticulture. Recreates fresh produce team then teaches their students to make jams, chutneys and relishes from their freshly grown ingredients. It’s a great learning experience for the young people, and a great eating experience for you!

We’ve got a range of Recreate’s seasonal Our Harvest chutneys and relishes in this months cheese box, including Beetroot and Orange Chutney, and Lemon and Chilli Relish. We hope you enjoy the flavour you’ve received and we hope you’ll feel good about contributing to Recreates important work in our community.
