Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden

Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden

Nestled between the red-bricked Goodman Building and First Creek Wetland at the eastern edge of the Botanic Garden, the Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden is a vibrant city oasis, developed to inspire a sense of wonder in children about where their food comes from.

The Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden includes garden beds abundant with seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs; pots and trays; structures for climbing plants; fruit trees; compost; worms; native bee hotels, working bench spaces; and enclosed areas – including a large basket weave dome – for storytelling and group discussion.

Garden plots have been divided up into odd-shaped beds with a sawdust path flowing through, creating a sense of adventure for little visitors.

Little Sprouts is open to visitors outside of booked education program sessions.

Stroll through the Garden and find inspiration for your own kitchen garden – at home, in the workplace or in the community!
