Earth Momma's

We assist creches with seeds to grow there own food to feed the children a meal a day. The peels from these meals are used for animal feed and in compost heaps. The surplus veg are sold as organic veg in the upper highway area. We also have a selection of pesto’s and pastes made from our produce. It is our passion for doing more and being more that has brought about Grow Our School. Empowering Children and Communities by teaching them the value in paying it forward and sustainability.

Seed Bank

We stand for all things sustainable and would love people to keep their seeds when cutting their vegetables and preparing meals. Seeds need to be rinsed and stored on newspaper. Drop off anytime or Friday from our designated Earth Momma outlet for Fruit and Veg boxes. We also will happily take any of your potatoes or sweet potatoes that have started to root. We pop them straight into bags and watch them flourish. Carrot tops as well.

Baby First Foods

The Baby First Foods will also work on a bartering system for those parents that are not able to purchase the Baby First Foods. The parents and grandparents will be able to bring in seeds, seedlings, glass bottles to exchange for Baby First Foods.
