The EduGrow Program encourages and recognises schools and communities who develop creative two way learning activities to grow good food and to promote healthy lifestyles, people and places.

EduGrow is all about promoting action to grow good food, good learning and good times at school and in community in the spirit of healthy food, family and community. The EduGrow School Garden Awards ran from 2012-2015 specifically for remote and regional schools.

In 2018 EduGrow is a storytelling and sharing program that aims to celebrate NAIDOC Week and Reconciliation Week themes and the great people and projects who are growing and sharing goodness where they live.  

Why?

  • Good food, good learning and good times! Outdoor classrooms and activities can help build student participation, confidence and learning outcomes.
  • Children aged 16 and under represent 50% of the population in most remote communities and need better access to more fresh, affordable food.
  • Learning how to grow, prepare and try new foods can inculcate healthy habits for life to help tackle growing rates of diabetes, obesity and heart disease.

What we do

  • Work with partners to develop and deliver engaging, easy to participate in awards and/or storytelling activities that can engage students in meaningful and fun academic and life skills learning activities. 
  • We support and recognise schools and teachers to undertake engaging outdoor learning and storytelling activites with their students to promote good health and help inspire other students, schools and community groups.
  • We tailor the program to regional needs and growing conditions.
  • We promote culturally inclusive learning and 'food' - bush foods and fruit and veg.

What you can do

  • Donate to EduGrow so that we can conduct more gardening and healthy food and lifestyle workshops and celebratory events to support and encourage participating schools and communities.
