Kitchen Garden

First and foremost, we want to enchant and engage the children, get them digging and planting and picking, or get them mixing or rolling or chopping, or get them around a table with their own freshly baked pizza topped with their own tomato sauce, liberally scattered with herbs from the garden, and the result is enthusiasm, real learning and great flavours

The Kitchen Garden Program was first established in 2001 at Collingwood College, as an experiential learning pilot program by Stephanie Alexander and Collingwood College.  Each week 180 children in Grades 3 to 6 spend forty five minutes gardening in their organic vegetable garden and orchard which they helped to design and build, and now maintain in our school grounds.

Walk through the Edible Parterre

Overall design and concept are by Joy Froebel

This walkway is lined with beds of lush produce plants- herbs, fruit, veggies & companion plants to inspire and promote growing our own food in our home gardens.

These garden beds are a 21st century Australian version of parterre gardens . They are set out in near symmetry, but are edged with recycled metal railings in place of the traditional hedging . The beds are raised, and will envelop visitors as they walk to the entrance.
