Paddock to Plate and Waste – Poster exhibition

Poster exhibition and activities at the Lilydale and Yarra Valley Show

On Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th of November we held our poster exhibition at the Show. We had an amazing amount of interest and visitors making the weekend a great success, albeit exhausting.

By the numbers, we had 86 students from 2 schools (Upwey Primary and Belgrave Heights Christian School) create 46 posters about the food system. There were well over 250 visitors, with 71 families participating in the treasure hunt (see previous blog), playing our ‘what vegetable is that’ game and wondering through the posters and information at the stall learning about food systems. We gave away 16kg of local apples which was a welcomed snack for many of the stall visitors, 34 label reading cards, 40 nutritional vegetable guides (see previous blog), many postcards about Inspiro Health services and water donated from waterbox.

We had lots of positive feedback with visitors saying they loved the work, learning about vegetables and foods that are grown locally.

Previously grade 3 /4 at Upwey Primary School in the Yarra Ranges told us what they have learnt after the incursion and while creating the posters: https://youtu.be/xkIqaHX0xQA

Treasure Hunt – Paddock to Plate and Waste

Our Treasure Hunt at the Lilydale and Yarra Valley Show

We had a great weekend at the Show with our Poster Exhibition and Treasure Hunt. The treasure hunt took families to 5 stalls that are a part of our food system. We had 71 entries with an amazing 70 that were completed in full. Families visited the Lilydale Community Garden stall; the cookery display to find a cake with a vegetable as the main ingredient; the honey display to find out about bees; the scarecrow exhibition and then to our stall find a fruit or vegetable that is grown in the Yarra Ranges. Then, the hunt asked for a ‘pinky promise’ to try a new vegetable during the week. From mushrooms and bean sprouts to turnips and Brussels sprouts, hopefully lots children are trying a new vegetable this week. Every entry won a pack of seeds and went into the draw for the main prize of a gardening kit.

Prizes were donated by our partners. Our work is funded by the Victorian State Government and this specific project was partly funded by a VicHealth Jumpstart grant.

Paddock to Plate and Waste – a Video

Lesson Plans, class learning and having fun shown in a 4.30 min video

This video shows grade 3/4 from Upwey Primary school taking part in  the Paddock to Plate and Waste  project.  The project involves free lesson plans and resources to help students learn about the food system and the foods we eat most of to help our bodies be at their best. 

Students then prepare posters to share their knowledge with the wider school community.  We can also offer free incursions within the Yarra Ranges to run the lesson plans.
