Some of the positive effects of this type of ‘hands-on’ learning:

  • It gives students a sense of responsibility and achievement when they may not be achieving in other areas
  • Boys especially have been found to improve their attitude, attendance and behavior at school 
  • Gives students a new experience which may lead to a career path

  • Have fun while learning a new skill
  • Relaxing and enjoyable lunchtime activity
  • Working as a team creates important life skills
  • Less likelihood of vandalism of  the equipment and plant life within school environment
  • Teaches students about a sustainable lifestyle and caring for the environment

Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation

We are delighted to continue be part of the Stephanie Alexander Program.  Stephanie Alexander has developed a fantastic school based program for students to receive ‘hands on’ learning experiences in growing, cooking and eating their own produce. This program will ensure the students learn valuable life skills about sustaining a healthy lifestyle for themselves and their families for the future. 

At Adloheat we offer friendly & professional advice and ideas for schools just starting out in their growing projects.  We also welcome ‘ongoing’ enquiries and feedback from schools’ success stories.

Many schools across the country have purchased our hot houses and benches after gaining funding through the program. 

Our Hot houses, Benches and Plants Stands allow students areas to have a solid work area inside the house for potting up, propagating their own plants, raising seeds, growing plants and for storage.

All our products are Australian made, by an Australian owned business and we are proud to be part of the Stephanie Alexander Program.
