Christine, Primary School Teacher

When children are involved in hands-on learning through digging and picking, or mixing and chopping, or sitting together sharing their own freshly baked fritters, or freshly made Vietnamese rolls packed with herbs from the garden, the impact is multi-faceted.

The young students have a new connection with the land and a new understanding about what it is to nurture the soil and the seeds planted. They appreciate the concept of living sustainably, show a willingness to experiment with foods and a heightened self-confidence, readily absorb and recall related information and display a wonderful appetite for more.

I believe Get Kids Cooking in conjunction with schools growing their own produce can positively affect the wellbeing not just of children, but of the land and our communities.
