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.
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 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 from the garden!
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 posting monthly updates here so you can track the schools' progress throughout the year.
You can watch our TV commercial below. Enjoy!
