Propagation for the Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden

Date posted: 20 March 2015

Over the past few months, Botanic Gardens of South Australia nursery staff have been busy propagating a multitude of plants ready for the Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden program in Adelaide Botanic Garden.

The Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden program has been designed to align with the National Early Years Learning Framework providing children aged three to six years with hands on experiences in an engaging outdoor learning environment. Children will undertake activities that utilise play and exploration, exciting their natural sense of wonder and engaging all the senses.

Thousands of plants have been sown, germinated and potted. Working with the Project Coordinators, nursery staff have ensured the best quality plants are produced on time.

We’re very excited to announce that the first of the plants have been delivered to Adelaide Botanic Garden for planting out, and over the next 4 weeks the Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden will come alive with the colours and smells of delicious, edible produce.

The Mount Lofty Nursery staff are very excited about the project and look forward to continue supporting this program.
