DRIVER KITCHEN GARDEN PROGRAM
Students at Driver primary are getting their hands dirty and learning about GROWING, HARVESTING, PREPARING and SHARING fresh seasonal food.

Each builds invaluable knowledge and understanding of food and of the integral role it plays in our physical and social wellbeing. Each plants the seeds for a lifetime of positive eating habits and enjoyment of food. We want to bring good food into the curriculum and culture of every school; to feed the minds, bodies and futures of each and every student.
