Plant to Plate

We were the main sponsor at a the Feilding Promotion business house golf tournament last week. And as such we had the privilege of nominating where profits from the day would be donated to. We chose Plant to Plate Aotearoa, a local group that does amazing things in our school communities.

They provide a team of volunteers to assist teachers and students to establish vegetable gardens, plant fruit trees and cook tasty food in three or more practical sessions over a school term

Our sponsorship will help them to buy kitchen and gardening equipment and establish new gardens in some new schools.

The Plant to Plate vision

  • Gardening and cooking integrated into the school curriculum
  • Children learning life skills around the growing of their food
