Partners and sponsors
Australian Organic Schools would not be possible without the support of its fantastic sponsors, partners and ambassadors. These people and organisations believe in our mission to teach children about where their food comes from and the benefits of organics for our health and that of the environment.
School partnerships have an enormous impact on education as they provide schools with funds, products or expertise to build a garden, give children hands-on learning opportunities and build relationships between students, teachers and industry. Below is some information about our great partners.
Green Harvest is a proudly Australian organic gardening business. Since 1992, they have taken great satisfaction in supplying the Australian home, community, school and market gardener with a great selection of organic gardening products such as seeds, pest management, microgreens and sprouts, poultry supplies, tools and more.
The Diggers Club
The Diggers Club is Australia’s largest garden club. They are passionate about preserving the best traditions of gardening and rescuing heirloom vegetables to ensure their seeds can be preserved for future generations. On their website you will find fact sheets, advise, articles, forums and a shop where seeds, tools, books and more can be purchased.
