As the weather is getting warmer the children are enjoying there time out in the gardens watching the produce grow and the beautiful flowers bloom. Room 13 have been busy in the kitchen creating delicious meals and learning a whole bunch of skills. Most importantly the students have been learning to correctly read a recipe and the importance of specific measurements.
Here are some pictures of Room 13 in action.

As term four begins, the wet weather still lingers but there is bright sunshine on the horizon.
The Garden to Table team is looking forward to seeing the students begin their journey to summer, experiencing bountiful harvests in the garden and mastering vital techniques in the kitchen.
Garden to Table is also offering evening cooking classes this term to our parents and wider community. Please visit here for more information, including how to book.
The students in Room 9 were quite surprised when they walked into the kitchen and read they were making ‘Green Pizza’. “What on Earth is that?”
As they got over the excitement they were asked to go out to the garden to find some silverbeet and spinach. The students had the opportunity to pick the silver beet from the gardens, wash it thoroughly to get rid of the dirt and slugs and dice it finely. Using their hands and some flour they carefully created a pizza base to add their lovely toppings and finally lots of mozzarella. As they came out of the oven the students carefully sprinkled some basil on top of the stringy golden cheese!!!

Room 16 planted silverbeet on Monday the 1st of August at Garden to Table with Jodie. We were excited to do some planting and growing of our own vegetables. We had to pull all the weeds out before we planted anything so the weeds don’t take all the space and food for our plants. Next we dug a little hole for our seedlings and squished the plants out of their plastic so we could plant them. We felt pleased and proud when we saw all the little silverbeet plants in the garden.
With winter’s cold fingers upon us and the rain and wind lashing at our tails, the students at Edendale come back to term 3 full of excitement. Why, you might ask? Well because another round of Garden to Table starts and students will get to explore the various vegetables growing in the garden, and how these can be used in the kitchen.
The Ata Rangi team have been learning how to write explanations. After a fantastic lesson at Garden to Table, planting bean seeds with Jodie and baking delicious Banana Chocolate Chip muffins with Anna. The students used their knowledge to explain why they enjoy Garden to Table sessions.
