This workshop session will provide an overview of the course and the benefits of establishing a garden program at your school. To ensure that gardens form a valuable resource in the delivery of Science and Technology outcomes, we will share practical activities to use.

Royal Agricultural Society of NSW

The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS) will take you through our extensive ‘Farm to Table’ resource designed for Stages 2 & 3 students and teachers. Farm to Table focusses on the importance of agriculture in our lives and concepts from paddock to plate and field to fibre. This resource has 77 activities, broken into 10 different categories, and meets key curriculum requirements from the Australian and NSW syllabus including Science, English, Geography, Personal Health, Maths and History. Each category also has a bigger STEM project that you can complete with your students, and all the activities are adaptable and extendable depending on how much you want to challenge your students. This resource is designed as a sequential resource that can be covered over a full term. We look forward to taking you through this resource as well as pointing you towards our many others.
