Founder Stephanie Alexander wants to spread the word that applications to join the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden National Program are now open.

”We are actively looking for more schools and want them to know how flexible the program has become,” enthuses Stephanie.

“The program is affordable and flexible and you don’t have to start with a fully productive garden or a state-of-the-art kitchen. I think many principals get overloaded with information and it all seems too hard, and yet there is not a single teacher I can think of who is not blown away by the reality when they visit a school that is participating.”

The program has been embraced all around the country with 297 schools Australia-wide and around 35,000 children already enthusiastically getting their hands dirty and learning how to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal food.
