Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden Learning Program



The Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden Learning Program at the Adelaide Botanic Garden is available for early years groups from schools and pre-schools across South Australia.

This program has been designed to align with the National Early Years Learning Framework. It provides children aged four-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.

The Kitchen Garden will showcase the benefits of growing fresh, healthy produce to the whole community instilling healthy habits from a young age.

The general public are welcome to visit the Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden when sessions are not being held.


Little Sprouts Learning sessions are free to attend for pre-school and school groups. The sessions are 60 minutes in duration and led by a qualified Kitchen Garden Educator.

Bookings 2018

Thank you so much to all the preschools and schools that participated in the Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden Learning Program in 2017.

Those that visited us no doubt had as much fun as we did and were inspired to go out and start gardening! We now look to 2018 and a new year.

A thorough review of the Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden Learning Program is currently being finalised.

Following this, we hope to have bookings available for schools shortly. Please check this webpage where the bookings will be released. Thank you for your patience.

We're also excited to announce that in 2018, for the first time, we'll be introducing a kitchen garden program for year 3 to 7 students. Stay tuned for more news regarding this early in the new year!

Please note that our minimum group size is 12 and our maximum group size is 30 children for each session.
