Farmer and Food Connections

Connecting schools with local growers, horticulture producers and farmers, provides a great opportunity for students to experience all stages of ‘paddock to plate’. These fact sheets have been designed for schools to gain more information on how they can connect with farms or agriculture businesses.

Parent Connections

A common way to connect with parents and carers is through newsletters or social media. Below are sample articles on a range of evidence-based food and nutrition topics to help inform the school community. Schools are encouraged to copy these (acknowledging Health and Wellbeing Queensland).
