The program is all about growing good food, good learning and good times at school.
The Program aims to encourage, support and recognise the wonderful efforts of students, teachers and school communities who create safe, engaging food gardens and outdoor learning places and activities in them.
EduGrow is built around a friendly awards program in the spirit of which everyone who participates is a winner. Participants have the opportunity to share their achievements and entries and so provide practical tips, ideas and inspiration to other students and communities.
The EduGrow program does a few things, it:
- conducts the EduGrow awards to recognise and celebrate special students and schools who grow and learn in special places and growing conditions;
- develops and shares information;
- connects people, runs events and workshops.
Each year the EduGrow School and Community Recognition Awards focus on special themes and ideas, but always in the overall spirit of Food, Family, Community and growing good food, good learning and good times.
EduGrow teams up with local educators and gardening gurus to conduct gardening workshops and other events t support people to get together, to share ideas and inspiration, and expertise and tips that are suited yo their communities and growing conditions.
