- Let them eat cake!"
The FOCKCers, Friends of Caring Kiwi Communities, was formed last century, we've been doing the hard yards and putting our money where our mouths are - and where the hungry kids are - teaching local children gardening, and so much more. Unlike dodgy corporate sponsored handouts of mainly dairy products and processed sugar laden carbs, by a corporation owned or controlled by the Seventh Day Adventist Church, who believe that slaves cannot enter heaven among other things as I understand it, we teach self sufficiency, build self esteem and grow potential through teaching and supporting kids and their families to grow their own food, focusing on fresh fruit and vegetables, and supporting children and their families, and others in the community, to establish their own gardens and encourage community gardening in every community.
We also deliver an extremely successful suicide prevention program through our gardens, establishing our gardens in schools, and helping children to grow their own food, and to grow it at home as well as at school, and encouraging people to enjoy and participate in community gardening, providing primary health care in the community - physical and mental.
Key, Parata, John Hayes, Ron Mark and the others pulling the strings are covering up for liars and bullies, and if we allow liars and bullies to run schools, it results in a lot of suicide. We have over twice the national average, regularly. That's also due to the fact that the local Police are infected with a rotten
We were running extremely successful programs in our community for a number of years, despite heavy opposition from these private interests. Our community centre was shut down by a few incompetent and corrupt local 'politicians' - one of which was Georgina Beyer, the FOCKCers saved the community gardens, but the opposition has been well documented and it shows that vulnerable children are being exploited and taxpayer funding ripped off and defrauded, and wasted when it could be better spent (at least some of it) on more worthwhile initiatives providing better value for money, like ours.
We teach and support children - and anyone in our community, including many of those sentenced to Court ordered 'community work' - to establish community gardens, and gardens in the back yards of low income homes. We teach children self sufficiency, rather than a handout mentality.
We've been asking our local MP, John Hayes, to address the matter of the blatant bullying at the South End school - and the performance of that school and others in Carterton including Dalefield School, and in particular the matter of the FOCKCers Let's Get Growing program at the South End school, where we witnessed - yet again - how these 'initiatives' are controlled and ripped of by private interests and that those interests are the priority, not the interests of the tamariki.
We don't just teach gardening, we teach REAL life skills, thinking, planning, teaching people to grow their OWN kai.
We've been documenting the waste of money and the bullying and dysfunctional governance of the South End school and local Council and other community organisations since last century, and the evidence is clear to see. We deliver an extremely effective suicide prevention program, and it's ironic to say the least, that the government ignores the blatant bullying and dysfunction going on right under their noses, and hands out cash to their corporate and religious mates.
