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.

Growing Plants from Seeds


Tuesday, March 24, 2020   |   Linda Taylor

Growing plants from seed teaches children about the magic of nature and the natural lifecycle of plants. Fruit and vegetable seeds come in all shapes and sizes, each with the potential to grow a plant which we can eat all or part of. Growing plants from seed provides opportunities for you to talk with your children about what factors a seed needs to germinate and grow, and the parts of a plant that will develop as it grows.  If you have old packets of seeds lying around, why not see if they will still grow?  Check the expiry date, though, to help manage expectations, and make sure you have some fresh seeds as well, which have a better chance of success!

Growing plants from seed teaches children about the magic of nature and the natural lifecycle of plants. Fruit and vegetable seeds come in all shapes and\n sizes, each with the potential to grow a plant which we can eat all or part of. Growing plants from seed provides opportunities for you to talk with\n your children about what factors a seed needs to germinate and grow, and the parts of a plant that will develop as it grows.  If you have old\n packets of seeds lying around, why not see if they will still grow?  Check the expiry date, though, to help manage expectations, and make sure\n you have some fresh seeds as well, which have a better chance of success!
