Kitchen Gardens in Schools

A useful resource for schools thinking of starting their own Kitchen Garden can be found at Kitchen Gardens in Schools.

In the Parramatta Catholic Education Diocese many schools are using Kitchen Garden to improve oral language of our students. 'A naturalistic approach to language involves students in active physical participation. It offers support for students’ language, thinking and social development. As students develop physically and cognitively, and begin to explore their environment, they start to understand and use their growing language skills for an expanding range of purposes.' (Love and Reilly, 2010)
This blog provides practical information, links to resources and wonderful photos which will inspire any school to start their own kitchen garden.
