Garden to Table tour
A behind the scenes look at an edible educational programme is being offered to cooking and gardening enthusiasts.
The Garden to Table Trust is holding its inaugural school garden and kitchen classroom tour on April 17.
The trust is hosting guests at a selection of Auckland schools that have adopted the highly successful programme.
Visitors will see children working in their school vegetable gardens and kitchens, where they can learn how the programme works and sample food the children have prepared.
The tour will show the project in action at Owairaka School, Edendale School, Meadowbank Primary and either East Tamaki Primary School or Dawson School.
‘‘We hope the funds raised from the tour will help us extend the Garden to Table concept to even more children nationwide,’’ trust chairwoman Catherine Bell says.
Tickets cost $95 each and include a gourmet picnic lunch and travel aboard a luxury coach.
