Educational Resources during COVID-19

We are pleased to be able to share some of our Garden to Table gardening, cooking and education resources to support families during this lockdown period. You can view recent posts and categories on the right of the screen. All across NZ funding bodies are closing to new applications, corporates are putting a hold on their donations, and generous, individual donors have become our lifeline. Garden to Table doesn't receive any government funding, although our work, building resilience and life-skills in children, has never been more important. We are making our resources freely available, but would be grateful for any donation you are able to provide to help us continue our work with over 16,000 primary school children each week. The Donate button is at the top of the screen. Stay well and kia kaha.

Rainy Day Activities


Tuesday, April 07, 2020   |   Linda Taylor

Rainy days are tough for everyone, especially when the children are itching to get outside and the adults probably are too. Rainy day activities are ideally as practical and hands-on as possible.  Here are some ideas we use at Garden to Table when we can't get out in the garden.  Please click on the link below.

Dig for Victory Education Unit


Monday, April 06, 2020   |   Linda Taylor

Tying in with Anzac Day celebrations and remembrance, this unit explores how vegetables influenced New Zealand’s war effort and why. Using photos and other historical documents, students will explore what happened at home during World War Two and consider how that might have impacted on their lives if it was today. Finally, students will plan and plant a Victory Garden of their own using a recycled container and look at how changing behaviour and making individual sacrifices impacts on the greater good.  Please click on the links below to work your way through the unit.

See in the Dark Anzac Biscuits


Monday, April 06, 2020   |   Linda Taylor

Anzac biscuits were named after the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps or ANZACs as they were known in World War One. They were a popular item for wives and patriotic women’s groups to send to troops for they didn’t spoil on the long sea journey to troops serving abroad. This recipe has been given a World War Two twist with the addition of carrots, and some extra depth with rosemary and poppy seeds. Click on the link below for the recipe.

Anzac biscuits were named after the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps or ANZACs as they were known in World War One. They were a popular item for wives\n and patriotic women’s groups to send to troops for they didn’t spoil on the long sea journey to troops serving abroad. This recipe has been given a\n World War Two twist with the addition of carrots, and some extra depth with rosemary and poppy seeds. Click on the link below for the recipe.
