Introducing a new Garden to Table Partner: CareSaver.


Wednesday, July 17, 2019   |   Linda Taylor

You may have seen in the news yesterday that a new KiwiSaver scheme has recently partnered with NZ charities to help make a world of difference. We’re proud to say that Garden to Table is one of these charities. CareSaver KiwiSaver Scheme is a KiwiSaver Scheme with an ethical focus. You may find this offers you a KiwiSaver Scheme that shares your values.  To benefit NZ charities, Pathfinder Asset Management Limited (which is the issuer of the CareSaver KiwiSaver Scheme) will donate 20% of their management fees from CareSaver to charities like Garden to Table and investors can choose which charity they would like to receive their donations. To select us as your charity, all you do is nominate Garden to Table as your chosen charity in the application form if you switch to CareSaver.

Root to Tip is back for 2019!


Wednesday, May 29, 2019   |   Linda Taylor

We are delighted to announce that, with the support of Rabobank, Root to Tip will once again see kiwi kids cooking up a storm in 2019!  The competition is open to all year 5 and 6 students in NZ, with entries opening soon! Working in teams of two, they design two dishes with a focus on seasonality and reducing food waste, using vegetables all the way from their root to their tip!

Great prizes are up for grabs including $1000 in a Rabobank NoticeSaver account for each of the two overall winners! Along the way children will have a chance to get creative in the kitchen and cook their dishes alongside great kiwi chefs all around New Zealand.

"Be with a Tree" and make a fruit crumble!


Wednesday, May 29, 2019   |   Linda Taylor

This year Garden to Table is collaborating with Forest & Bird's Kiwi Conservation Club as a partner in their 'Be With A Tree' promotion, which runs from 31 May-9 June. There is a series of 10 tree-related challenges for kids to complete over the 10 day period: https://kcc.org.nz/be-with-a-tree/.  Our challenge is to find a tree that provides us with food, and make a fruit crumble. Hopefully that and some of the other challenges will prompt great conversations with children about where they might find particular kinds of trees at school, around their neighbourhood (in backyards, parks or the bush), or further afield in places like orchards or botanic gardens.

We encourage everyone to embrace these challenges to #bewithatree next month!  Click to view  a new fruit crumble recipe which Garden to Table has produced for this promotion.  Enjoy!

GTT's 'Dig for Victory' launches at Parliament


Wednesday, May 01, 2019   |   Linda Taylor

We had a very exciting morning at Parliament, planting the first 'Dig for Victory' gardens. We were delighted that the Speaker, Rt Hon Trevor Mallard, supported our suggestion to dig up the parliament lawn for a productive vegetable garden, showing that you can grow vegetables anywhere!  Click here to read the write-up in the Dominion Post.

'Dig for Victory' was a successful wartime campaign that reignited vegetable gardening across New Zealand. We're hoping to do the same in 2019, together with support from Parliament, the American Embassy, the Royal NZ RSA, and local schools. The gardens will be tended over the winter so, if you're in Wellington, you are welcome to stroll through and have a look. We'll be celebrating with a harvest event later in the year, so stay tuned!

We are delighted to announce that, with the support of Rabobank, Root to Tip will once again see kiwi kids cooking up a\n storm in 2019!  The competition is open to all year 5 and 6 students in NZ, with entries opening soon! Working\n in teams of two, they design two dishes with a focus on seasonality and reducing food waste, using vegetables all the way from their root to their\n tip!

\n

Great prizes are up for grabs including $1000 in a Rabobank NoticeSaver\n account for each of the two overall winners! Along the way children will have a chance to get creative in the kitchen and cook their dishes\n alongside great kiwi chefs all around New Zealand.

\n

What creative recipes can your kids come up with? Entries and recipe submissions are open from 17 June to 1 July. For\n all the latest information and to see all the fun from Root to Tip 2018, head to www.roottotip.org.nz\n

This year Garden to Table is collaborating with Forest & Bird's Kiwi Conservation Club as a partner in their 'Be With A Tree' promotion, which runs from 31 May-9 June. There is a series\n of 10 tree-related challenges for kids to complete over the 10 day period: https://kcc.org.nz/be-with-a-tree/.  Our challenge is to find a tree that provides us with food, and make a fruit\n crumble. Hopefully that and some of the other challenges will prompt great conversations with children about where they might find particular kinds\n of trees at school, around their neighbourhood (in backyards, parks or the bush), or further afield in places like orchards or botanic gardens.

\n

We encourage everyone to embrace these challenges to #bewithatree next\n month!  Click to view\n  a new fruit crumble recipe which Garden to Table has produced for this promotion.  Enjoy!

We had a very exciting morning at Parliament, planting the first 'Dig for Victory' gardens.\n We were delighted that the Speaker, Rt Hon Trevor Mallard, supported our suggestion to dig up the parliament lawn for a productive vegetable garden,\n showing that you can grow vegetables anywhere!  Click here to read the write-up in the Dominion Post.

\n

'Dig for Victory' was a successful wartime campaign that reignited vegetable gardening across New Zealand. We're hoping to do the same in 2019, together\n with support from Parliament, the American Embassy, the Royal NZ RSA, and local schools. The gardens will be tended over the winter so, if you're in\n Wellington, you are welcome to stroll through and have a look. We'll be celebrating with a harvest event later in the year, so stay tuned!

NADIA LIM’S STAR SHINES LIGHT ON GARDEN TO TABLE, IN NEW SEASON DANCING WITH THE STARS NZ ON THREE. \n

\n

Remember to vote!  Text NADIA to 3333.  Celebrity chef, entrepreneur and mother, Nadia Lim, is slipping on her dancing shoes to take on the upcoming season of Three’s Dancing with the Stars NZ – and she’s dancing for Kiwi charity Garden to Table.  You can listen to Nadia talking with Jesse Mulligan about Garden to Table or, t\n o see Nadia in action, and her recent visit to Owairaka School, click \n here!  \n

\n

National food education charity Garden to Table provides primary school students with essential, hands-on skills so they can grow, harvest, prepare and\n share fresh food. The curriculum-integrated programme provides broad learning opportunities and empowers self-sufficiency, resilience and self-worth\n amongst primary-school-aged children.

\n

Nadia has chosen to support Garden to Table as her charity as funds raised will enable more students to learn essential food-based life skills. Garden to Table currently operates in 176 primary schools throughout Aotearoa, positively impacting around 23,000 children across years three to six, but there are a further 238,448 children from 1,821 schools who\n are currently missing out.

\n

Nadia says “The health and wellbeing of our communities is one of my greatest passions and I would love to help arm every child with the skills to access\n and love fresh nutritious food, no matter their circumstances - I see it as a fundamental right of every child. On top of that, I believe the mental\n health benefits from getting outside, connecting with nature and getting away from screens are just as important as the nutrition benefits. Teaching\n kids to love gardening and cooking is absolutely one way that we can give them skills to help look after their mental wellbeing both throughout their\n childhood and beyond into their adult life.”

\n

Linda Taylor, Executive Officer at Garden to Table Trust says, “Nadia’s ethos surrounding New Zealand’s future of nutrition completely resonates with our\n values, so we’re proud to have her on board. A large portion of the country’s children are being deprived of the opportunity to learn how to plant,\n grow and prepare food. These are essential skills and the chance to learn them should be available to all children. Nadia’s involvement in Dancing\n with the Stars will help us to go some way towards achieving this goal for New Zealand. Our schools will be rooting for Nadia, and we hope our backing\n will help her grab the Glitterball!”

\n

Garden to Table hopes to raise enough funds to support more communities of higher need, so their students can learn and share these critical life-skills.\n When children are taught how to grow food and cook for themselves, they’re gifted a sustainable and exciting future – something every Kiwi child deserves.\n

\n

After first gaining New Zealand’s attention as the winner of second series of Master Chef New Zealand, Nadia, a trained dietician, has gone on to become\n one of the country’s most loved personalities. Known for her ‘Nude Food’ philosophy, Nadia has successfully promoted her love for healthy, fresh eating\n and ethical food practices into the Kiwi consciousness. As the co-founder of leading home meal kit delivery service My Food Bag, and her namesake magazine,\n Nadia continues to champion her passion for healthier communities in New Zealand.

\n

Dancing with the Stars NZ on Three will air on Sundays at 7pm and Mondays at 7.30pm from Sunday 14 April. After each week’s performance, the public will\n be able to vote for Nadia and Garden to Table.

\n

Be sure to tune in and show your support for Nadia!
