Covid-19 Update 1


Thursday, March 19, 2020   |   Linda Taylor

These are extremely challenging times for our schools and students and, at Garden to Table, we are committed to providing them with as much support as possible. We are keeping close track of government recommendations and ministry guidelines and, based on the current advice from MPI (attached) we are encouraging schools to continue with Garden to Table, wherever possible, while maintaining stringent hygiene practices. 

There are many benefits for our students in continuing with Garden to Table. Working in the garden supports mental health and encourages mindfulness, and also provides the opportunity for physical activity while maintaining physical distance. Cooking classes encourage resilience and a feeling of control in our students, while we are surrounded by a situation beyond our control. Students can learn recipes that they can recreate at home, helping to support their family and whānau with their cooking skills should self-isolation prove necessary. Sharing a meal together also provides another opportunity for us to connect authentically with our students.

Wednesday, February 05, 2020   |   Linda Taylor

Be into win a place for you and a friend at Al Brown’s table when you host your own Garden to Table Garden Party in March! It's a fun and creative way you can support children as they learn to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh food in primary schools all around NZ.

We appreciate that schools may have fewer volunteers for their GTT sessions, if any, and our team will be sharing activities and recipes that schools can\n use if running sessions with just a classroom teacher.

\n

We will continue to support schools as they work through these challenging times, and will be providing further information over the coming week about\n ways students can continue to use Garden to Table at home to support their mental health, their resilience, their education and community contribution.

Be into win a place for you and a friend at Al Brown’s table when you host your own Garden to Table Garden Party in\n March! It's a fun and creative way you can support children as they learn to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh food in primary\n schools all around NZ.

\n

Money raised from the 2020 Garden to Table Garden Parties will help us train and support\n primary schools throughout Aotearoa to begin, and deliver, their Garden to Table programme. With your help, we can make sure the next generation understands\n where their food comes from, how to grow it, prepare it, and enjoy sharing it, learning skills they need to sustain and nourish them for a lifetime.

\n

Hosting a Garden to Table Garden Party is a great way to catch up and share delicious food with your friends, family or colleagues, while supporting Garden\n to Table by raising essential funds. Plus, the first 50 Garden Party hosts that raise $100 will receive a $20 Palmers voucher!\n

\n

It doesn't need to be fancy and you can hold your Garden Party anywhere - in the office canteen, your back garden or around your kitchen table. You can be as creative as you like!\n

\n

Registrations are open, so hop online to register your Garden Party now, at www.gttgardenparties.org.nz !\n
