Our School - Garden of Eat’n


FOOD PRODUCTION This aspect of school grounds development centred on growing food. Many students are unaware of where food comes from. Their experiences centre on food coming from supermarkets. Growing food adds another dimension, incorporating the taste sense into school grounds development. Children plant and ultimately harvest produce which is either incorporated into class cooking or taken home to share with family.

Garden of Eatin experiences are included through Technology which is delivered by a specialist teacher.  Students have designed, planted and maintain this interactive learning area.
