Kitchen Garden Classroom Membership provides access to the unique Shared Table website, including a library of hundreds of pleasurable food education resources, an open forum and individual activity sharing profiles, and a network of thousands of educators across Australia, along with access to Kitchen Garden Foundation support and training.

The Membership is an important step in continuing to bring the huge benefits of the Kitchen Garden Program to Australian children and their families, and will allow thousands more schools and learning centres to take advantage of the Program's proven capacity to:

• Be embedded across the entire school curriculum to cater to many school needs
• Change food behaviours and encourage increased vegetable and fruit consumption
• Form strong, self-sustaining school-community partnerships
• Engage parents and disengaged students
• Be used as a foundation for academic learning, based on practical, real-life, sensory experiences
• Change school and community cultures to embrace a holistic wellbeing philosophy.
