School and community gardens are such an important part of student’s lives today, teaching them not only about the true source of their food and their social responsibility but also life-long valuable gardening skills.
We have helped many schools over the years create fundraising products specifically for their school kitchens and canteens, the designs appeal to the wider community and having the students draw their favourite plants/vegetables/fruits also make for unique pictures. Earlier this year we had the pleasure of creating one such design for Camberwell South Primary School, winner of the Best Edible School Garden Award for 2018! Coordinator Virginia, who also runs the garden & kitchen contacted us for help designing an apron in the school’s signature blue and yellow colours to celebrate the win. Featuring student sketches of produce from the garden, the chicken coup, the prize winning chooks and the pride of the school – the beautiful mulberry tree, a lovely apron design was created to be used by students and staff in the kitchen and at events such as school carnivals throughout the year. Extras were also ordered to on-sell to families to raise bonus funds for the garden, along with a matching tea towel design when the aprons were so popular they sold out!
Virginia’s feedback – “You have given us such a great boost to our kitchen garden with your design it just hits the spot and everyone seem to be eager to buy one. The aprons have sold out unexpectedly and we hope to put another order in after the carnival with a tea towel order too…thanks for being so clever and great to work with.”
We’re so pleased you have a popular and useful memento to commemorate your success, well done Virginia and everyone at CSPS!
