This is a blog about our primary school’s garden and kitchen. Sue is our head gardener and teaches us about growing  fruit and vegies,  while Georgia shows us how to cook the produce into beautiful dishes in our kitchen.

From the Start…


The Mount Scopus Kitchen Garden was established in 2009.  A group of very interested Year 6 students visited local state primary schools to view their kitchen gardens and learn more about the kitchen garden program.  It was decided that we would make a start on our own garden and work towards joining the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program.

Lots of hard work from students, teachers and volunteers went into the building of our garden.  A collaborative design effort from students and Sue Vernes (landscape designer) was achieved and the garden was designed around the Israeli flag’s Star of David, the Magen David.
