Gardening

Jarrahdale Primary School is involved in the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program. All students participate in an ongoing garden and cooking program, run by community volunteers and specialists. The school has a bountiful garden producing fruits, vegetables, salad greens and herbs along with some chickens supplying eggs.

During Earth Aware, students plan, plant, weed, prune and harvest the garden. The produce is used in the Earth Aware cooking sessions and jams and preserves are sold to the community at pop up stalls during school assemblies.
