The School Kitchen Garden is a hands-on learning program whereby students learn how to grow, harvest, prepare and serve fresh food. They become involved is planting seeds, watering, fertilising and caring for edible plants. 
They harvest the crop and then learn how to store, prepare, cook and serve them as nutritious food. No doubt they enjoy eating the fruits of their labour and thereby develop an understanding of vegetable farming from paddock to plate.
The Rotary Club of St Peters in conjunction with the MGA Whittles Community Foundation supports the Trinity Gardens School Kitchen Garden.
Stephanie Alexander AO, one of Australia’s most recognised cooks, food educators and authors, established the Kitchen Garden Foundation in 2004, following the success of the first kitchen garden program piloted in 2001.
The motivation for this work came from Stephanie’s awareness of the growing childhood obesity problem in Australia.
The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation supports early childhood services and primary and secondary schools across Australia.
