The garden and kitchen provide a real-life context for learning, interweaving the theories and practices behind growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing fresh, seasonal foods. Students learn to build and maintain a garden according to organic principles, and to grow and harvest a wide variety of vegetables, fruits and herbs. Our vegetable garden provides edible, aromatic and beautiful resources for the kitchen. Students learn about the natural world, its wonders and beauty and how to cultivate and care for it.
In the kitchen, students prepare a range of delicious dishes from their harvested, seasonal produce. The shared meal is a time for students, specialists, teachers and volunteers to enjoy the fruits of their labour, and each other's company and conversation.
