Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program
Since its inception at Yarra Primary in 2007, the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program has become a feature of the school – with a focus on eco-sustainability – creating social, physical, moral and intellectual development. The engaging curriculum has the children actively growing organic food that is then harvested, cooked in our kitchens, and enjoyed by the children
