Al Brown lends support to children’s food education charity
The simple act of planting a seed as a child can sow a lifetime of love for fresh produce and home-made food. This is the vision of NZ food education
charity Garden to Table, which is encouraging every child in New Zealand to learn how to grow, harvest, prepare and share good food.
Al Brown visits Garden to Table!
Thursday, June 23, 2016 | Linda Taylor
Celebrity Chef Al Brown had a wonderful time when he visited Garden to Table at Owairaka District School. We're not sure what was more exciting for the year 5 & 6 students - a visit from Al, or the Seven Sharp cameras! Have a look at Al's visit here, as he enjoys pumpkin ravioli made with home-made pasta, with a sorrel butter. Thanks for allowing us to visit, Owairaka District School!

Room 22 from Papatoetoe West School invited Ronnie, from the popular children's TV show What Now, along to share their Garden to Table session recently. Linda, Garden to Table's Executive Officer and Joanne, the Auckland Area Coordinator, had a quick chat with Ronnie to tell him all about Garden to Table, and why we love helping children grow, harvest, prepare and share.

Garden-loving MBA joins Garden to Table
Wednesday, November 18, 2015 | Joanne Harland
She’s got an MBA, has studied at Harvard and loves nothing better than getting her hands dirty in the garden. And those are just a few of the many relevant qualifications Linda Taylor is bringing to her new role as executive officer at the Garden to Table Trust.
The trust aims to build skills for life through a highly practical hands-on food education programme in primary schools. It not only teaches gardening and cooking skills but also builds awareness of individual and collective responsibility for the environment, healthy eating and community connectedness.
