2010 Organic Expo & Green Show

See me at Speakers Corner

If you happen to be in Sydney in August, you may like to attend the 2010 Organic Expo & Green Show.  I will be participating in Speakers Corner and am thoroughly looking forward to it.


Session Date & Time:  Saturday 21 August 2.15 - 3.00pm
Get Your Kid A School Kitchen Garden

Every child should have the right to learn about good food and nutrition as basic education.  They should also experience the fun and reward of growing their own food.  Following the judging of the veggies entered by schools in the "Dig Your Dinner" competition, this talk will leave you inspired to ensure your child has the same opportunities.  

Leonie has pioneered a scheme of edible school gardens and has successfully implemented this into 15 schools already.  She will show: How to get this happening within your schools; Discuss the importance of this for your children's future; and show some lovely examples of her work in action and the benefits the kids are getting.

Leone will be available for questions and signing her new book "Eat Your Garden" afterwards.

Session Date & Time:  Sunday 22 August 2.15 - 3.00pm
Edible School Gardens

"Food Glorious Food" Sang The Children and that was based on gruel in the London workshops.  Leonie Shanahan, School Kitchen Garden pioneer, will get your kids shouting this from the rooftops by showing how easy and fun it is to grow beautiful, tasty, and nutritious food.

You can't be too young to start and what is learned at school can easily be transferred to home and a lesson passed on forever.

Leonie will be available for questions and signing her new book after this session.  Leonie's new book titled 'Eat Your Garden' will also be available.
