Our New TV commercial, with Al Brown

We were excited to see our new TV commercial launch on TV3 and other MediaWorks channels on Sunday 12 May.  Our Ambassador Al Brown donates his time to Garden to Table and, as a MediaWorks National Partner, MediaWorks produce and air our commercial for us without cost, so we are both fortunate and grateful.

Introducing the Evaluation Programme


Thursday, May 09, 2019   |   Linda Taylor

With support from The Tindall Foundation and MediaWorks Foundation, Garden to Table Trust is conducting an evaluation of the Garden to Table programme in 2019 and 2020. The aim of this research is threefold; to investigate the impact of Garden to Table on childhood food literacy, academic achievement and social outcomes.

The research will be conducted in partnership with two Auckland schools; Henderson North School and St John the Evangelist Catholic School in Otara. It is important to note that, while the schools are publicly identified, all student data will be collated and anonymised. Currently, the Trust is consulting with researchers from the University of Otago, the University of Auckland and Awa Associates, and we are very grateful for their support.

Over the past 10 years we have received constant feedback from parents, teachers and Principals about the benefits they see from Garden to Table. We are excited to be able to formally assess the impact of the programme, as two schools begin their Garden to Table journey.

Our New TV commercial, with Al Brown\n

\n

We were excited to see our new TV commercial launch on TV3 and other MediaWorks channels on Sunday 12 May.  Our Ambassador Al Brown donates his time\n to Garden to Table and, as a MediaWorks National Partner, MediaWorks produce and air our commercial for us without cost, so we are both fortunate and\n grateful.

\n

The students had a fantastic time working with the TV crew and Al to make the advert, although they did begin to realise that TV work involves a lot of\n waiting around.  And also, TV directors like to film a scene more than once, which may involve replanting all the weeds that you have just weeded\n from the garden!  

\n

We will be filming a further TV commercial later in the year as we revisit the schools to see their Garden to Table programmes in action, but we'll be\n posting monthly updates here so you can track the schools' progress throughout the year.

\n

You can watch our TV commercial below.  Enjoy!\n

Welcome to St John the Evangelist Catholic School!\n

\n

St John is a decile 1 school in Otara, Auckland, with a student community that is 95% Pasifika.  They also started their Garden to Table journey late\n in term 1 by weeding the raised garden beds ready for planting.  

\n

Like Henderson North, the arrival of the TV cameras created much excitement, with some of the students recognising Garden to Table Ambassador Al Brown\n from their knife skills videos, viewed the day before!  However, they soon realised that filming for TV can be a pretty boring business, with\n lots of waiting around.

\n

The TV show The Project was also at the school filming, so we're looking forward to seeing more about St John on TV soon.

A big welcome to Garden to Table, Henderson North School!  \n

\n

Henderson North is a decile 3 school situated in West Auckland and has a diverse, multicultural student community.  Approximately 30% of students\n identify as Māori, 30% as Pasifika, and 20% of Asian heritage.  

\n

Students from years 3 and 4 began their Garden to Table sessions towards the end of term 1, with a huge part of the excitement being the visit from the\n MediaWorks TV cameras and Al Brown, to film Garden to Table's new television commercial.  Less exciting was completing the long food literacy\n questionnaires!

\n

Changes in food literacy over the year is being examined in partnership with Professor Sheila Skeaff,\n from the University of Otago's Department of Human Nutrition.  We're excited to be able to track the impact of Garden to Table on a range of food\n literacy indicators, and are really looking forward to tracking students as they learn how to grow, harvest, prepare and share good food.

With support from The Tindall Foundation and MediaWorks Foundation, Garden to Table Trust is conducting an evaluation of the Garden to Table programme in 2019 and 2020. The aim of this research is threefold; to investigate the impact of Garden to Table on childhood food literacy, academic achievement and social outcomes.\n

The research will be conducted in partnership with two Auckland schools; Henderson North School and St John the Evangelist Catholic School\n in Otara. It is important to note that, while the schools are publicly identified, all student data will be collated and anonymised.\n Currently, the Trust is consulting with researchers from the University of Otago, the University of Auckland and Awa Associates, and we are\n very grateful for their support.

\n

Over the past 10 years we have received constant feedback from parents, teachers and Principals about the benefits they see from Garden to Table. We\n are excited to be able to formally assess the impact of the programme, as two schools begin their Garden to Table journey.

\n

Over the next 12 months we will be regularly sharing updates from our research schools, so you can follow their progress as they establish their garden,\n cooking space and Garden to Table programme. If you are interested in receiving updates from the Garden to Table Evaluation Programme, please email\n info@gardentotable.org.nz.
