By popular demand, Aeoncademy are introducing a new program to help children learn to cook and are asking for donations of cooking and gardening equipment.

Aeoncademy’s Sparks (ages 4-7) have been really enjoying participating in a World Cooking program for awhile now, much to the jealousy of many of the older children who want to participate as well. So here it is, a cooking and gardening program for ages 7-14!

Led by Ruth Gaha-Morris of The Southern Harvest Association and Scrumper’s Garden, students will be introduced to cooking from scratch, making such things as yoghurt, cheese, muesli, bread and pasta, flavoured from the growing Garden at Aeoncademy.

The program uses herbs and plants from the newly established garden beds as well as doing winter planning for the ongoing development of the kitchen garden. This is a real hands-on learning experience of food, gardening and sustainability.

Named after the mythical Horn of Plenty, a symbol of abundance, this budding kitchen and garden program has been named Cornucopia.

To help launch this program, Aeoncademy are putting out a call for any gardening or kitchen tools you are not using. Spades, rakes, bread tins, mixing bowls, even electric appliances like frypans or slow cookers . Also glass containers. Please recycle your clean, glass jars with lids (all sizes) in our big green collection bin outside the art room. All donations gratefully received!

Starting Term 3, Monday 4-5.30PM there are only 11 places, get in touch through or ring the office on 6142 3268.
