The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation is growing a food revolution from the ground up!
The national program is changing the way children approach and think about food. All around the country, children are enthusiastically getting their hands dirty and learning how to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal food.
The fundamental philosophy that underpins the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program is that by setting good examples and engaging children's innate curiosity, as well as their energy and their taste buds, we can provide positive and memorable food and gardening experiences that will form the basis of positive lifelong eating habits.
At Koondrook Primary School students in Year 3 to 6, have been given the opportunity to participate in weekly small group gardening and cooking classes. Using produce from the garden they make food and then eat and share it.
