KITCHEN GARDEN

Volunteers needed 

The Kitchen Garden relies on volunteers to keep it growing.

The Program

The Kitchen Garden is an outdoor classroom for teachers and students from K-6 for cross curricula lessons in science, visual arts, and mathematics, as well as being a tool for teaching sustainability and environmental education.

 

The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program currently runs with Year 3 in semester one.

The students in this program learn all aspects of growing an edible organic garden, including the importance of soil, beneficial insects and companion planting. They learn how to build and maintain a compost and worm farm, grow vegetables and other plants from seeds and cuttings, and maintain garden beds. They also learn how to grow vegetables seasonally, harvest produce and to help prepare and taste the food.
