Be A Part Of Our Pilot Programme for Teachers


Our Pilot Programme aims to equip 11 primary school teachers with the knowledge on how to guide their students in setting up an edible school garden in accordance to their individual capacity. Each primary school teacher will then nominate 5 students whom they will guide through the process, with the help of Eats, Shoots & Roots. The programme will include:

• 1 x Teacher’s Workshop (Online or Practical, depending on COVID SOPs) on 15th October 2021, 10am-11am
• 6 x Monthly Kids Kits (sent to each nominated student)
• Online support from Eats, Shoots & Roots over 6 months


This pilot programme is FREE for successful teacher applicants, and has been
made possible with the help of UNICEF, the Penjana SIM Grant, and kind
individuals who have funded this programme directly:
• Ai Goto/ CHANGE Education Fund
• Albert Lim
• Shanaz Stephen
• Jac Ying Wong
• JL

*Limited to 11 spaces.
Priority will be given to Primary School Teachers from local schools
