School Food Gardens

The Localising Food team toured the country and witnessed many exciting child-led initiatives to grow, process and preserve their kai. Growing Schools tells the beautiful story of children discovering where their food 'really' comes from. It explores the benefits of school gardens and features testimony from teachers and gardens facilitators who have seen the amazing growth in the children as a result. This documentary will help expand the school garden culture in New Zealand and support children to establish a life-long connection with their food.
The 4 parts to Growing Schools are: 1 Awakening Gardeners - 2 Growing Gardeners - 3 Enriching Gardeners - 4 Empowering Gardeners.
