Creating a School Garden in Glen Eden

School garden report from Glen Eden Intermediate School

"At GEIS, we have a group of students who once a week with the Food Technology teacher tend to a garden.  The point of the garden is to show students how food can be grown from seed and then used in cooking, therefore teaching the about sustainability. 

We were very lucky to receive a small donation from Slow Food Waitakere to help launch this project.  The students are very protective of their garden and enjoy getting outside the classroom and getting their hands dirty.

A big thank you to Slow Food Waitakere".

So important that kids see the connection between planting seeds, watching plants grow and then eating them! Then they know that food comes from the earth - not the supermarket.
