Henderson College

Henderson College is an independent P-10 school located in Irymple. Students from Prep to Year 6 are involved in a kitchen garden program, which is part of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen program. Stephanie Alexander launched the program to teach children the basics of planting, cooking and eating vegetables, out of concern that many Australian children are growing up ignorant of food – where it’s grown and how it’s cooked. Henderson College students spend time planting, caring for and harvesting their produce, and preparing and cooking food in the school’s kitchen. The garden is a beautiful space, and has great kitchen facilities to match. The kitchen and garden specialist staff do a great job and the kids obviously enjoy their time growing, preparing and eating fresh wholesome food.
