Kitchen Garden Background

Last Updated: 10/09/2015


East Fremantle Primary School is a member of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation Schools Program.


Our involvement in this program originated from a strong desire held by the parent body for students at our school to participate in a program that promotes learning about growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing fresh seasonal food.  A very creative, dedicated group of parents, lead by Sarah White, put forward an extensive submission to join the project.  In 2010 East Fremantle Primary School was invited to join the SAKG Program and was awarded a monetary grant to establish and run the program.


Initial progress on the plan took time, as we waited for the new school buildings to be constructed.  At the end of 2011 we were able to trial our first Kitchen lessons.  In 2012 we began to establish our main garden and the kitchen program was conducted across the whole school.
