Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

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.
