Kids Growing

Welcome to the Kids Growing website. This site is designed for participating schools to assist and support the delivery of the core curriculum - using life-skills (edible gardening, cooking, hands-on science and sustainable living) as the platform.


Our programme focuses on kindness - to the environment, ourselves and each other. It promotes understanding of growing, harvesting, preparing and eating own-grown food along with environmental sustainability. Our tailored lesson plans give teachers and kids fun and engaging opportunities to develop these skills while teaching maths, science, culture, literacy, language and more...


Our community is advocating for the benefits of teaching life-skills in our classrooms. We're delighted to be part of the solution. So are our kids. So are their whanau.


So stay tuned. Waitaki Community Gardens and Kids Growing are taking us all to the next level. You’re going to want to be a part of this!
