‘Veggie Buddies’ is a healthy eating curriculum that is taught in school veggie beds. All classes are aligned with the federal curriculum subjects of (S,T,E,M) Science, technology, English, Maths & Physical Health and Wellbeing. With an emphasis on play based learning all classes are taught in outdoor classrooms created by school’s veggie beds.
The ‘My Organic School’ mission is to create lasting, healthy nutritional change by making organic produce affordable. We do this by building the administrative tools to make organic buying cooperatives scalable and rolling them out in Australian schools. In essence we are disrupting the conventional distribution model of organic produce.
