Welcome to Garden to Table


The Garden to Table programme is changing the way children approach and think about food. All around the country we want to see children enthusiastically getting their hands dirty and learning how to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal food.

Childhood obesity is an increasing issue in New Zealand and at Garden to Table we strongly believe that children who understand where good food comes from, know how to prepare it and then share it with friends and whanau, are likely to make better food choices.  

There are many schools with kitchen gardens, which we strongly support.  However, this is only half the equation.  Children also need to understand how to harvest and then use their wonderful produce to prepare good food that can be replicated at home.

Celebrity Chef Al Brown had a wonderful time recently at Owairaka District School, taking part in their Garden to Table session.  Have a look at his recent visit, as the school make pumpkin ravioli using home-made pasta, with a sorrel butter!
