Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden
Hampstead Primary School offers the nationally accredited Stephanie Alexander Kitchen garden program. Students from year 3-7 have weekly lessons with our trained Garden Specialist. They learn to plant, grow and harvest seasonal fruit and vegetables in our garden, as well as researching natural solutions to bugs and garden pests.
Every two weeks these students work in our purpose built kitchen with our Kitchen Specialist to prepare healthy meals and snacks using produce from our garden. They learn life skills of chopping, slicing peeling and cutting as well as using cooktops and ovens safely.
