Wednesday 15th February hosted the start of Garden to Table with our Room 4 learners. Watering certainly wasn't a problem this summer and the kitchen crew had an array of produce to work with. The garden team planted seeds for winter, harvested and undertook some weeding. In the kitchen, our learners cooked up a meal of vegetable and cheese fritters, salad with a tasty dressing, and rice bubble and marshmallow slice. If the empty plates were anything to go by, the mahi (work) in the kitchen paid off!
Garden to Table
Through the ‘Garden to Table’ programme, Whakamārama School aims to teach our learners the essential skills they need to be food-resilient. Each week our learners enthusiastically get their hands dirty and learn how to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal food.
