The Foundation needs you
The role of the Foundation is to provide skills, support and inspiration to schools to assist them in implementing and delivering the Kitchen Garden Program. Operating with a small, dedicated team across Australia, we are a not-for-profit, charitable organisation that relies on the generosity, shared vision and commitment of schools, volunteers, philanthropic organisations, government, business and individuals.
We are very lucky to have a small group of office volunteers who assist us with day-to-day tasks essential for keeping the Foundation running smoothly; if you would like to register your interest in joining our volunteer team please contact us.
Our schools need you
Kitchen Garden Schools rely on regular and dedicated volunteers to guide students in kitchen and garden classes. They are a much-valued and essential part of every school's kitchen garden team. Volunteers come from varied backgrounds and bring with them diverse interests, talents and skill-sets - the school staff and the students learn a lot from their volunteers, welcome their input and are grateful for their time and energy.
You don't need special skills or qualifications to be a kitchen garden volunteer, just a passion for cooking or gardening (or both!) and a willingness to engage children in learning about food in a pleasurable way. Volunteering in schools is a very rewarding experience and contributes greatly to the success of the Kitchen Garden Program.
If you would like to volunteer with a Kitchen Garden School please look for a school near you and contact them directly regarding any current opportunities. They will be very pleased to welcome you to the kitchen garden community!
