My vision is that all young children will know how to grow their own food and I believe this should begin in the early years.
I offer a range of options to support early childhood kaiako to engage the tamariki they teach in gardening and gardening related experiences.
Based in Christchurch, this is a facilitated programme where I go into the centre on a fortnightly basis and work with ngā tamariki on gardening and garden related experiences.
This is a service throughout Aotearoa. It runs for one year and is designed to support centre kaiako who are find it difficult to garden regularly or are unsure how to engage tamariki in gardening and need ideas and support.
PLD offered is predominantly via webinar for kaiako throughout Aotearoa. There are seasonal gardening webinars plus some additional topics.
There are also whole-centre PLD options that can be tailored to suit the centre needs. This is offered via zoom or face-to-face if in Christchurch.
