SAKG – Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden


The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden (SAKG) program is a dynamic curriculum program for children in Year 3 to Year 6. The program instills in children the values of growing their own produce and utilising this produce to cook healthy delicious meals. Children learn many valuable life skills through their participation in the program. In 2014 a Masterchef style kitchen was built for specialised SAKG cooking lessons and we grow a variety of vegetables and herbs in a large garden at the front of the school.

As part of the program once a term the children from Prep to Year 6 have a lesson in the garden which is followed by a cooking lesson. Following the Shared Table philosophy the children use the fresh produce they have picked from the garden in their cooking lesson and eat the food together at the SAKG outdoor patio.
