Garden to Table is Coming to Takanini School!

The Garden to Table programme will help our school to build our students life skills through practical, hands-on classes in the school garden and kitchen. We want our students to get their hands dirty and learn how to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal and healthy food.

For more detailed information on the garden to table programme visit

We are keen to start the Garden to Table programme in July or early August 2019.

We are looking to employ a kitchen and garden specialist to be part of the Garden To Table team - please see our vacancies page for details.
