The purpose of this study is to develop an Objective Model of a Garden Based Curriculum on Nutritious Fruits and Vegetables for Indigenous Primary Schools. Data collection was conducted using Interpretive Structural Modelling (ISM) method to develop the model. The Nominal Group Technique (NGT) involving 11 experts from various related disciplines including Indigenous research, Indigenous nutritional research, curriculum design, agriculture and activist from Semai ethnic was implemented for adding and dropping the elements presented before voting was conducted. NGT was carried out as an efficient technique for generating ideas in groups and for clarifying the generated ideas prior to the voting procedure. Findings indicate development of objective model of a garden based curriculum on nutritious fruits and vegetables that comprises four objective elements. Apart from the development of objectives model, the development of curriculum content model, teaching and learning methods model, evaluation and assessment model are enabled to be used as a guideline in developing modules and teaching and learning programs for improving nutritious fruit and vegetable consumption for Semai indigenous children.
