Kitchen Garden

Students love kitchen and garden classes because they’re fun. Pleasurable food education is about children experiencing the joy of digging in the garden, picking fresh veggies, smelling and tasting the food they prepare, and sharing the experience with their classmates and helpers.

Our Kitchen Garden provides time and opportunity for learners Foundation – Year 6 to engage in gardening and cooking. All learners engage in planting, mulching and caring for our garden.  Seasonal vegetables and herbs are harvested providing fresh food to our kitchen.

Organic waste from the kitchen and our brain food scraps (organic fruit and vegetable waste) are used to feed the worms in our worm farm.  Fertilizer harvested from our worm farms is used on the vegetable gardens and also bottled for sale.  Profits from our worm tea sales are used to purchase vouchers for the needy in the wider community.
