This week is Kitchen Garden Week. The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation has been running successfully since 2001 and is now in 700 schools! Kitchen Garden Week celebrates a collaboration with GPT shopping centres enabling the programme to reach a greater number of people. Right now there are 7 GPT Kitchen Gardens around Australia and we are lucky enough to be just down the road from the one in Norton Street Plaza.
The rooftop Kitchen Garden is open to everyone, every day and is a beautiful use of what would normally be, wasted space. We visited the garden this morning and spent close to an hour touching, smelling & learning about all the edible plants and herbs. There are also organised cooking & gardening workshops, perfect timing for the school holidays. Sure makes a trip to Coles a bit more interesting!
