I had the privilege of taking part in a Garden-to-Table session at Oropi School this week and it was quite a sight.
The kids are 100% engaged and enthusiastic about planting, growing, cooking, presenting, eating … and even cleaning up!
Onsite they grow fruit, vegetables, and herbs, and produce their own eggs and honey. In a morning session, they’ll have teams preparing the food, others preparing the tables, and all take part in planting and maintaining the gardens for the future.
I was incredibly impressed with the kids actively learning about all aspects of what they were doing, and when we all sat down to eat, the food was great!
The Garden-to-Table program at Oropi School was recommended by one of our customers as a worthy recipient of our monthly community support donation, and I have no doubt the team of teachers and volunteers running the program will put it to excellent use.
