You may have heard of a pop up retail store or a pop up restaurant but every once in a while we have a pop up garden. These usually coincide with some food related or sustainability festival but when it does happen these lush tiny edible gardens are a welcomed tranquil relief against a backdrop of a frenetic city.
The Kitchen Garden Foundation was started by Victoria’s culinary doyenne Stephanie Alexander to give primary school students an experiential food education that involves not only the students and teachers but their families and community. It is through this type of education student’s get a better understanding of where food comes from and now have programs running nationwide.
