The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program has successfully been running at Osborne for over 3 years. In the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program children across years 3 to 4 spend a minimum of 40 minutes per week in an extensive vegetable garden that they have helped design and build, and which they maintain on the school grounds according to organic gardening principles. They also spend one and a half hours each week in a kitchen classroom preparing and sharing a variety of meals created from their produce.

The aim of the Kitchen Garden program is pleasurable food education for children. The program develops lifelong skills in the kitchen and garden, appreciating and enjoying the environment and encourages children to enjoy all the benefits of growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing.
