Garden to Table is changing the way children think about food

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.

Established in 2008, Garden to Table now works with over 6,000 primary-school-aged children all across New Zealand, helping them discover a love for fresh food and skills that will last a lifetime.  The programme is curriculum-integrated and provides real-world learning opportunities, taking learning outside the classroom.

Please explore our website to find out more about Garden to Table.
