The On the Grow (OtG) team of coordinators is all set to take out the OtG veggie seedling kit to twelve local schools in the first two weeks of February, kicking off at Colo Vale Public School on the 1st February. They will offer an hour-long information/activity session for primary age children The session would involve a potting up activity, educating kids about the importance of backyard food to our health and what they need to know about growing on seedlings to have growing success at home and at school. They will also be providing them with three seedlings each to take home and nurture to maturity until they end up on the dinner plate. Our thanks go to Speedy Seedlings Leppington and Southern Phone Community Grant program for making this project possible.
