Plant to Plate is a not-for-profit which provides in-class food education for primary schools. The educational programmes involve setting up vegetable gardens within schools, cooking seasonal food, and preparing menus based on what they plant and harvest. They provide 4 sessions per school per year. Their programme focuses on sustainability, thrift and independence, while giving practical gardening advice to children. The volunteers help the kids plan and plant their own school gardens, and the children are also encouraged to take seedlings home, and grow their own vegetables with their families.
