Gardening & Cooking in Primary Schools Programme

PLANT TO PLATE is a community programme available to all primary schools across Palmerston North and district.  We deliver a quality service led by teachers and assisted by experienced, enthusiastic volunteers who enjoy working with children.

The Plant to Plate Vision

  • Gardening and cooking integrated into the school curriculum
  • Children learning life skills around the growing of their food
  • Children learning life skills around cooking food
  • Children learning ways to care for the environment and the earth’s resources

We can’t do what we do without the public support and funding of our community.
