In February 2004 the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation was established, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the ongoing support of the successful project at Collingwood College, and to introducing Kitchen Gardens into other primary schools.

The Foundation wants to spread the word that by teaching children in a pleasurable way about growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing food, we are able to create a significant force for change..

My daughters school, East Bentleigh Primary School, is applying for a grant for the Stephanie Alexander kitchen garden project.

Children will have gardening lessons where they get to grow and harvest food and then cooking lessons where they get to cook and eat it together. It’s all about getting children eating healthily through hands on, fun experiences with food. The grant only provides part funding and to be eligible to apply we have to get sponsorship from local businesses and community groups. The money/goods/services will be used to build the kitchen classroom and establish the vegetable garden and to help run the program etc.

So we need your HELP!…
Great pledges and donations have been received to date, and the school is tantalisingly close to having its own kitchen garden, but there are still things needed so please read the following list, and if you know of any way of assisting, please advise immediately as time is of the essence now!
