Garden to Table

Garden to Table is New Zealand's leading food education programme, empowering kids in schools and kura across Aotearoa to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal kai. We take learning out of the classroom and into the garden and kitchen, through weekly sessions linked to the school curriculum.

Over 350 givers have collectively raised $352,293.79 for Garden to Table. That equates to 7,046 children being able to plant, nurture, harvest, cook, and eat the fruit and veg from a school garden for a whole year in schools across Aotearoa New Zealand.

What We Do.

Our mission is to give every child in Aotearoa the chance to experience growing and preparing their own food, many for the first time, so they too can benefit from these essential life skills. The knowledge and skills that Kiwi kids learn through Garden to Table have a transformative and lifelong impact on their hauora (wellbeing) and on their connection with nature.  School Principals tell us that Garden to Table improves both health and education outcomes for their students. Our staff create Garden to Table resources and facilitate training and support for educators who deliver the programme in schools.

As a giver we’ll never hassle you for more money, call you or send you envelopes in the mail.

How it Works

Choose your charities

We’ve partnered with 15 trusted Kiwi-based charities. Choose one, some, or all. Tell us how much you want to give and how often. Set up once, then we’ll do the rest. Easy!

100% to charity

When you donate to a charity via One Percent Collective, a dollar given is a dollar received. The charity gets 100% of your donations. We don't take a cut.

See your impact

We’ll make sure you know what your dollars are doing. The difference they're making, the lives they're changing, and the stories they're creating.*

Don't just take our word for it.

I like the cause, the simplicity, and the flexibility of One Percent Collective. Keep up the great work!
