The Garden to Table Trust promotes edible gardens in Kiwi schools.
The Trust recognises a wide concern that basic “life skills” are not being taught at home, that many children are disconnected from their food supply,do not recognise common vegetables and know little or nothing about where food comes from.
One of their worthy goals is to lobby for the inclusion of the Garden to Table programme in all New Zealand State Primary Schools.
On October 28th the Garden to Table are holding two fund raising events.Australian celebrity cook and kitchen gardening guru Stephanie Alexander visits New Zealand to help raise funds for the trust.
A lunch event will be held at the Langham Hotel and at night a charity gala and auction at St Matthew-in the-City,187 Federal St ,Auckland.Go to www.gardentotable.org.nz for more detail and to order tickets.
