Westgarth Primary's innovative kitchen garden program provides pleasurable food education for young children. Created in conjunction with the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation and Go For Your Life , the program aims to positively influence our students' food choices.
Stephanie Alexander, the famous Melbourne chef and author, initiated the first kitchen garden programme at Collingwood College in 2001. Our school is one of only 43 schools in Victoria and a total of 90 across Australia with the programme.
The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program at Weeden Heights Primary School aims to encourage and facilitate learning for life through an engaging, fun and hands on experience in the kitchen and garden. We aim to promote and strengthen our community involvement in the Program and encourage the understanding of a variety of different foods as well as the relationship between the garden and the table.
