Kitchen Garden Program

Aspendale Garden’s curriculum ensures our students acquire skills that will serve them now and for years to come. This year Years 2, 3 4 & 5 students will participate in our Stephanie Alexander Kitchen and Garden Program. Our kitchen and qualified garden specialists provide an outstanding cooking and gardening program and our students love it!


The students spend time in the garden planting, maintaining and harvesting the fruits of their labour, and spend time in the kitchen cooking cuisines from countries around the world whilst gaining insight into different cultures. Table etiquette, developing their palate and honing their dining conversational skills are also part of this brilliant program.

Menus are based on the seasonal vegetables grown in our organic garden.  Students from all year levels enjoy, and are encouraged to help or just spend time in our huge vegetable garden during lunch time. 

Our garden has recently been enhanced by the addition of a breeding aviary for endangered Australian birds which is a huge hit with the students. Students assist in feeding and caring for our birds.
