BPS became a Garden to Table School 2 years ago. Each class has a raised garden where they learn how to grow, harvest and then cook veggies. Students love getting out in the garden and learning about the different fruit and vegetables. Students are taught the importance of trying new things and many have come to now love veggies.
The Garden to Table programme is changing the way children approach and think about food. All around the country, we want to see children enthusiastically getting their hands dirty and learning how to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal food.
Established in 2008, Garden to Table now works with thousands of primary-school-aged children all across New Zealand, helping them discover a love for fresh food and skills that will last a lifetime. The programme is curriculum-integrated and provides real-world learning opportunities, taking learning outside the classroom.
We would like to acknowledge and thank Fendalton New World for their ongoing support of this programme in our school.
