'My Organic School' www.myorganicschool.com organises Community Organic Fruit and Veggie Box programs for the school community and all residents surrounding local schools. The buying groups make the toxin free produce approx. 40% less than retail or home delivery services. This is achieved by the community working together to pack the bulk produce in to family boxes.
Locations: Public Schools at Bronte, Clovelly, Waverley, Woollahra, Bondi, Crown Street, Bourke Street, Birchgrove, Balgowlah North, Paddington, Coledale.
The boxes have 10 - 13 different organic fruit & veggie ingredients and have a great mix of staple & seasonal produce. All produce is 100% certified organic.
Funds are saved to develop a 'Where does your food come from' curriculum called the "Veggie Buddies" course. Every school with a buying group receives this 9 week course for free along with teacher professional development. The course is fully aligned with the federal curriculum areas of STEM (science, technology, English & maths).
Our mission is to make toxin free produce affordable for all families and provide healthy eating education to students. My Organic School operates as a social enterprise and is a free service for schools.
