Term 3 - Let it rain!


Tuesday, October 29, 2019   |   Linda Taylor

Our research schools have been very busy in the garden, despite the wet weather!  They have sent us through these updates to let us know what they've been working on during term 3, as well as the excitement of filming our new television commercial, produced and aired at no charge to Garden to Table by the MediaWorks foundation.  We can't wait to hear about their term 4 journey!

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.

"metaDescription": "", "body": "

Our research schools have been very busy in the garden, despite the wet weather!  They have sent us through these updates to let us know what they've\n been working on during term 3, as well as the excitement of filming our new television commercial, produced and aired at no charge to Garden to Table\n by the MediaWorks foundation.  We can't wait to hear about their term 4 journey!

\n

 

\n

 

\n

It certainly rained a lot last term, but that didn't stop our keen-bean Garden to Table class at Henderson North School.\n We grew microgreens in coffee cups, made scarecrows, celebrated Cook Island Language Week and Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori, sprouted kūmara in water, ran\n a spud-growing competition and made soup, muffins, fried bread and salads galore. And thanks to the generous support of local businesses and community\n groups (Westside represent!), we now have four new raised garden beds and a brand spanking new kitchen. Here are the students harvesting their first\n crop of potatoes today. \"It's like digging for buried treasure!\" one of the boys said.  Rachel, Henderson North School.

\n

 

\n

And at St John the Evangelist School, term 3 has been a very busy term! Despite many rainy\n Fridays we were able to get many things accomplished in the garden. We put down some paver stones to help beautify our garden, but more importantly\n to make our work easier on those wet, mucky days. It also gave us a chance to apply our knowledge about area and perimeter. We harvested heaps of silverbeet,\n cauliflower, broccoli, parsley, beets and an abundance of lettuce. Our beans have started to grow and we are excited to cook them up in Term 4.\n

\n

The highlight of our Term 3 harvest was the opportunity it provided to make the most delicious, yummy quiche - that was chock FULL of vegetables! We also\n were graciously welcomed by Henderson North School where we filmed the second set of promotions for TV3. We were very grateful for the manaakitanga\n extended to us by Henderson North School. We had a wonderful day where we planted micro greens and got to spend some more time with Al Brown. We are\n looking very forward to Term 4 - warm weather, plentiful harvest and a host of new dishes to try out!  Michele, St John the Evangelist School

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.
