Thank-you to those of you who have provided us with such positive feedback this year. We thought we would share some of your kind words about us with others who haven't yet experienced our incursions.
"Throughout the year, Year 1 have been inspired by a wonderful company called Seed. Harvest. Spoon. who have shared their knowledge and sustainable gardening skills with the children over 4 insightful incursions. Year 1 enjoyed many hands-on experiences planting seeds and seedlings, developing our worm farm and compost systems, and learning about the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling." Jessica Heath, Teacher, Highfields Preparatory and Kindergarten School, Lindfield, Sydney
"Michelle Carrick came to our school in July 2013 to teach us about worm farming, composting, soil layers, bugs in our garden and microscopic organisms in the garden and the compost. We also enjoyed learning about collecting, planting and nurturing our seeds to grow strong and healthy vegetables. As a result we have a wonderful garden of thriving vegies that we harvest on Tuesday each week for cooking in our lunch. We love this aspect of our lessons, realising where our food comes from. Our class really appreciated the units of work Michelle had prepared to follow up on the practical lessons. We enjoyed the fun during the lessons and the information they presented. We looked forward to each lesson every week. We would definitely recommend Michelle and her team from Seed Harvest Spoon to any future school or group."

"Our service was lucky enough to source the wonderful program offered by the team at Seed, Harvest, Spoon in 2013. We have had 4 workshops throughout 2013 with our 4 and 5 year old children and a Parent information session. All of the workshops were very interactive and informative and the children were very engaged in all of the hands on experiences. The Seed, Harvest, Spoon educators used lots visual and tactile resources and facilitated experiences that the children used to absorb information about sustainable practices and their environment. We have found that the children are knowledgeable and confident in sustainability and have included their families in all they have learnt. Seed, Harvest, Spoon has also been a great support for our educators in the implementation of our sustainability program. We cannot recommend them highly enough." Jenny Bickley, Director, St Andrew’s Kindergarten, Abbotsford, Sydney
"The range of workshops that are on offer link perfectly with a number of science and HSIE units we are currently studying. They are delivered by passionate and enthusiastic ladies who provide hands on activities that are highly engaging for students. A range of resources are used in demonstrations and each workshop has a literacy component which makes these learning experiences accessible to all students." Courtney Avramides, Teacher, Abbotsford Public School, Sydney
"Thank you to Seed Harvest Spoon for your all your support to the Sustainable Schools Network throughout the year. Your workshops have really enthused the teachers and local students." Bernadette Murray, Sustainability Projects Officer, City of Canada Bay Council, Sydney
"Thank you for the great presentation on worms. I'm really glad I came. Prior to the presentations I was a bit skirmish about worms and so wasn't sure how I'd go setting up and maintaining a worm farm but the way you presented them has given me a whole new respect for these incredible little creatures and has made me aware of the very important role they play in the ecosystem. I really admire the dedication and passion that you have towards your cause. Your enthusiasm towards sustainability and contributing to creating a better earth than what we found is very infectious. Thank you so much." Parent, Winston Mall Children's Centre
