Charles Campbell College has joined the renowned cook and food writer Stephanie Alexander's Kitchen Garden Group along with 672 schools Australia-wide, around 77,000 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 curiosity, as well as their energy and their taste buds, we can provide positive and memorable food experiences that will form the basis of positive lifelong eating habits.
At Charles Campbell College we deliver regular kitchen and garden classes, enabling skills-based learning that extends across the entire school curriculum. Teachers are comprehensive trained and resources to deliver the Kitchen Garden Program.
As participants in the Kitchen Garden Program, eight to twelve year-old children spend structured time in a productive veggie garden and home-style kitchen as part of their everyday school experience. There they learn skills that will last them a lifetime, and discover just how much fun it is to grow and cook their own seasonal vegetables and fruits.
