Growing Schools

Growing Schools is redefining food education in Victoria by connecting youth to food they eat and cultivating curiosity by using a school garden as an outdoor classroom. Lead by trained volunteers, elementary school children explore the importance of local food systems, seed saving, biodiversity and native pollinators while learning how to grow a garden.

Our model curriculum supports the Learning Outcomes of the Ministry of Education and addresses subjects such as Science, Social Studies, and Math. The Growing Schools Program offers partnering schools the delivery of 5 hands-ons workshops throughout the school year.
