Neta helps to bring Currumbin Community Special School’s Kitchen Garden to life.

At the end of last year, Currumbin Community Special School on Queensland’s Gold Coast, was accepted into the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program. The school now has their garden up and running, thanks to a little bit of help from Neta.

Queensland Area Sales Managers, Mike Thomas and Dave Edmunds were approached by one of their customers who informed them of what the school was doing. Mike and Dave then decided to go and have a look at the site for the garden and find out how they could help… and help they did. Between the 2 of them Mike and Dave helped to design an irrigation system for the garden and provided the school with all the materials they needed to make it happen.

The students at Currumbin School love their new garden and are getting excited about cooking with fruit, vegetables and herbs that they have grown from scratch. One of the students has been so inspired by the school’s garden he has started up his own landscaping service. The garden has so far been very beneficial to all at Currumbin Community Special School and has embedded a fantastic support network in to the students.

Kitchen Garden Schools thrive in all different types of communities, climates and settings. The program that the Kitchen Garden has to offer helps to inform the students and their surrounding families on the wide-ranging benefits of an enjoyable food education. It teaches everyone involved the invaluable knowledge and understanding of food and of the integral role it plays in each individual’s physical and social wellbeing.
