SCHOOLS with kitchen gardens could be in the running to share in $2000 worth of prizes from Wannon Water.
With school kitchen gardens growing in popularity, Wannon Water’s ‘Water It, Grow It, Cook It’ competition aims to teach kids even more about water efficiency, healthy living and sustainability.
Wannon Water managing director Grant Green said the competition involved students submitting recipes for dishes they had created using produce grown in their school kitchen garden.
“Wannon Water has visited around 40 school kitchen gardens in the last two years and has been very impressed with the enthusiasm of the students and school communities in nurturing their gardens and being water efficient,” Mr Green said.
“The Water It, Grow It, Cook It competition was designed to build on that enthusiasm and is now a popular part of Wannon Water’s education program. Wannon Water encourages students to get involved in 2014 and put their healthy produce to work for their chance to win a share of the prizes.”
The winning school will receive a gardening master class with a horticulturist, as well as sharing in $2000 worth of gardening prize packs.
