This January, we are delighted to announce a special Early Years Summer Membership Offer – exclusively for early years educators throughout Australia.
Everybody knows that young children love to be mixing, rolling, cutting, picking, digging and watering. Pleasurable food education provides the opportunity to do just that through hands-on kitchen and garden activities.
In a kitchen garden program, children also learn:
- positive food habits that last a lifetime
- numeracy and literacy skills, and about science, their environment, sustainability and different cultures
- life skills such as problem solving, teamwork and critical thinking
- to engage with the families and wider community supporting their service.
What is included in the Early Years Summer Membership Offer:
- Kitchen Garden Classroom membership for 2 years:
- Access to hundreds of recipes, information sheets, videos and templates to help you run a successful kitchen
- Connect to a vibrant online community of more than 7900 kitchen garden educators.
- Discounts on face-to-face training and customised professional development to suit your needs.
- Ongoing email and phone support from our friendly and professional team.
- Getting Started: A Guide to Establishing a Kitchen Garden Program (book).
- Seasonal Food & Gardening for the Early Years Book 1 and Book 2.
