The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program
What is The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program?
The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation is a not-for-profit charity that provides educational resources, training, support and inspiration to deliver pleasurable food education to Australian children.
The Kitchen Garden Foundation was established by Stephanie Alexander AO in 2004, in response to the overwhelming interest in and success of the first Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program at Collingwood College, Melbourne, from 2001.
The Kitchen Garden Program is now delivered in over 800 primary schools across Australia, teaching around 100,000 students every year the joys of growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing fresh, seasonal, delicious food. This group of schools represents 10% of all Australian schools with a primary curriculum, and will continue to be supported by the Foundation as a ‘model’ group of Kitchen Garden Program schools that the Foundation continues to learn from.
From March 2015, the Foundation has opened up a range of products and services so that all educators in early learning centres, primary schools, secondary schools, and health and education providers can access the Foundation’s range of pleasurable food education support:
• Face-to-Face, online and customised professional development
• Kitchen Garden Classroom Membership (with access to a large online kitchen garden community)
• Educational Resources
• Ongoing support via direct phone and email.
This range of tools is designed to support pleasurable food education for children, with the vision that all children form positive food habits for life. The Kitchen Garden Program model is based on students experiencing regular gardening and cooking activities, learning to grow, cook, prepare and share their own fresh, seasonal, delicious food. This learning is designed to create ripple effects throughout families and the wider community.
