At the beginning of term four Meadowbank school appointed their Kitchen and Garden specialists.


Wendy Masters is a teacher and a mother and has grown fruit and vegetables all her life.
She has been involved with the Environmental Education programme at Meadowbank School
for 10 years and says she was thrilled to be chosen as the Garden Specialist at the school.
"As a parent volunteer from the initial implementation of Garden to Table this year I am delighted
with the explosion of enthusiasm and interest among the children. Several families have started
vegetable plots or herb beds since the beginning of the year. I am enjoying helping our school's
pupils and families get back in touch with the down to earth pleasure of growing and eating and
sharing their food."

Jane Silvester is the school's new Kitchen Specialist. As a mother and former teacher she has
plenty of experience with children and her skills as an accomplished cook and passionate foodie
means she can pass on her love of good food and healthy and meaningful eating to the Garden
to Table students in a fun yet educational way.
