Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program

Margate Primary School proudly offers the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program (SAKGF).  Students from Year 3 to Year 6 have the opportunity to meet learning objectives in both the vegie patch and the kitchen. Students will be able to use their knowledge of fractions to dilute fertiliser, calculate the area of a garden bed, discover the joys of Japanese food, and experience what it is like to pick the food they have grown, then use it to cook wholesome food. Meals are carefully prepared and shared creating a touch of home. Volunteers from the participating year levels and wider community are essential and very much appreciated to ensure this program’s success. Volunteer positions are also available for members of our school or wider community to take on, for tasks from caring for our garden beds to making preserves to sell.
