“All seeds great and small” is our theme for Term 3 in Kitchen Garden. Classes planted broad bean seeds into cups and are taking care of them in their classroom where they will observe the seed growing into a small plant. The seedlings will then be transplanted into the garden beds in Kitchen Garden where they will grow into mature plants and then produce broad beans for us to eat and seeds for us to replant thus completing the amazing life cycle right before our eyes!
Cooking this term will also focus on seeds. In week 1 the cooks made nutritious apricot, muesli and sesame seed balls. These would be a great addition to the lunch box and are so easy to make and require no cooking. The recipe can be found on the website www.gccckitchengarden.com.au.
We are all very excited to welcome a much awaited new addition to Kitchen Garden…we are delighted to announce the arrival and installation of our very own outdoor sink. This means that the children can now clean up and do their own dishes; something I’m very grateful for and who knows…they just might test out their new dish washing talents at home! On behalf of all the Kitchen Garden volunteers and myself I would like to send a BIG THANK YOU to our wonderful P and F association who funded the project.
Until next time,
Yours in gardening and cooking,
