Sponsor a Garden Bed

9/10/2013

The fundamental philosophy that underpins the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program is that by setting good examples and engaging children’s curiosity, as well as their energy and their taste buds, we can provide positive and memorable food experiences that will form the basis of positive lifelong eating habits.

This program has seen an immense amount of work done in developing the garden at our school.  Led by Mrs Van Wunnik and a band of volunteers, the gardens are nearing completion.  Students in Year 4 have been cooking throughout the year and will soon be cooking the fruits of their labour!  

In order for the program to be implemented fully we need to employ a garden specialist who will manage the garden and coordinate with the cooking program.  Funds for this program are not available through the government.  In order to raise $15000 to employ a garden specialist, we are looking to community to support us. 

Donations or sponsorship will all contribute to this employment.  For example, sponsoring a garden bed for $50 per family will virtually get us to that figure we require.  Your name will then be displayed on the bed.
