Schools Outreach Program

Ensuring accessibility to our program is central to our vision and mission. To achieve this we offer a Schools Outreach Program to public schools in communities where cost is a prohibitive factor for engaging specialist, external education programs. Working with funding partners, our goal is to generate more opportunities to offer our program free of charge in communities where there are diverse and complex instances of disadvantage.

About the Program

The Seed Harvest Spoon ‘Schools Outreach Program’ provides high-quality, integrated, environmental education lessons to children from Kinder to Year 6. We utilise the school garden as a catalyst for learning. Students develop skills and knowledge in:

  • environmental sustainability and the natural world
  • growing food and developing food security
  • healthy cooking and nutrition literacy
  • extension and special interest projects

Our outreach program wouldn’t be possible without the support of sponsors.
