Farm2platemalaysia was founded because it was felt that organic farmers’ markets would benefit from cooking demonstrations, to educate consumers about how to cook and eat local produce. It started cooking workshops for kids and adults at a local organic farmers’ market and a local organic farm.
Some of its projects collaborate with small scale organic farmers, with 65% of the profit returning back to them. It also conducts cooking modules at a school. Its modules are modified from Alice Water’s The Edible Schoolyard Project so that it fits into the country’s setting. It wants to see more children connected to soil, learning to grow food and cook.
