The Foodweb Program
Foodweb Education is a garden-based eco-literacy program for Foundation to grade 6 students in Australia. We teach sustainability through a unique approach that integrates scientific knowledge with practical skills.
Foodweb uses ecological patterns for understanding everyday activities such as gardening, cooking, eating and waste management. We use these patterns because they apply to all systems on every scale.
