Join over 100 schools Australia-wide in learning to eat locally and sustainably.

“Entertaining, inspirational, objective and educational.”

Why choose the From Paddock to Plate (FP2P) Schools Program?

The national online FP2P Schools Program brings real life farming experiences and food education into the classroom using unique, accessible, cost-effective and hassle-free “virtual video excursions”.

FP2P is a one-stop shop to learn about where food comes from in a variety of different industries, on a variety of topics, using a variety of resources, covering Australian Curriculum requirements in Years 7 to 10.

If you’re a Science teacher, an English teacher, a Geography teacher… just take out a section of your current curriculum and insert the relevant FP2P curriculum. You’ll still be meeting the learning requirements of that subject and year level while also teaching your students about where their food comes from and giving them the opportunity to consider careers that they may have never otherwise.

This Program includes:

  • 14 “virtual excursions” (with more continually being filmed);
  • 4 DIY videos and projects for the garden;
  • 200+ of teacher manuals with 21st Century learning principles;
  • 100+ comprehension worksheets; and
