Kitchen Garden Foundation


How Cool is that! I have already been in contact with my little prep boy's school to inform them of this & to raise my hand to help out.

All Primary schools can apply to the Australian Government for grants of to $60,000 to fund infrastructure for the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden National Program.

The grants provide funding for the development of a productive vegetable garden & for the construction of a home-style kitchen on the school grounds.

More information in VICTORIA:
More information in other states:

Good Luck everyone!
Let's use this to teach our little ones what is important in life
& how to value our food & health!

I'd LOVE to hear what everyone thinks on this.

NOW available for order on my web site.

YEAHHHH! I'm so excited i have finally sourced a local person who makes the most delectable & lush Natural Australian Soy Wax melts, Candles, & Tealights. Plus i will also be adding her HAND MADE & Poured Natural Soaps.

They are so delicious! There are 50 different scents & flavors to choose from. the only problem is deciding which ones. Good Luck! LOL I had trouble deciding which one to burn first, but i'm extremely happy with my choice!

At the moment i have been burning Creme Brulee & ohhhh sooo nice! Hubby has even commented on the fact that he can smell them outside.

They are larger than your normal ones you get so you not only get QUALITY buy also QUANTITY! If it spills over it is a breeze to clean. Iknow i made a mess myself the first time & with a warm cloth you just wide it up & it's gone.

Hi Everyone, I have been busy putting these great little Goodie Bags together. I send one out to everyone who places an order via my web site. They are filled with little promo gifts & things from other businesses that i have come to know through a great networking site called Connect2mums.
A fabulous site to connect with others either in business or just mums who want to meet other mums.
We all send each other our little bits & put them all into a little paper bag. These then go out with all of everyone's orders to help each other to spread the word about each others businesses.
They may differ from time to time due to what i have been sent but they will most definitely packed with value!

Just to name a few of the companies & items: Lip Balm - by Pure Earth Noosa, Bookmarks - by The Toy Bug, Lollie Pops - by Op tots, Gift Vouchers - by Pure Earth Noosa, Belly Bumps to Baby Hugs, Kindy Kamper & others, Plus Discount Coupons, & much more...

Product Testimonial

yay i have just received another testimonial. This time regarding our NEW BPA Free Bottles.

I love my BPA free bottles! Thank you!
Our family takes bottles of water filtered most everywhere
and its exciting to have a healthier alternative to plastic

We particularly like the small size for our daughter, as we
sometimes take milk for her and it is so much more hygienic to
use the stainless steel bottles, and easier to clean too!

Thank you to:
Susan Wallis

My YUMMY Sweet Potato Cake
(same can be used to make Banana or Carrot)

Pre-Heat Oven to 180c for a fan forced oven
Butter your tin & coat with flour for easy extraction.

2 Cups of grated Sweet Potato, Banana or Carrot
125grams of Unsalted Butter
3/4 Cup of Sugar
2 Eggs
2 Cups of Self Raising Flour
1/2 teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda
2 Tablespoons of Milk

Cream the Butter & Sugar together & then add the Eggs & the Milk.
Sift the Flour & Bicarb into the mixture & then
fold in the Sweet Potato (Banana or Carrot)

Cooking time
30 mins - 45 mins

Depending on your oven & the main ingredient.
Push lightly on the cake & if it springs back up it's cooked
or you can stick a knife in the center & pull it out. If the knife is clean
then it's cooked if not just leave it in for a little longer.

Allow it to cool slightly before you take it out of the tin. Depending on
the Main ingredient used you can also make the icing for it.
I like to make Vanilla Icing as everyone tends to like it.

For Vanilla Icing
2 drops of Vanilla Essence
2 Tablespoons of Butter
1 Cup of Icing Sugar

Cream the sugar & Butter together then add the Vanilla Essence

I hope you ALL enjoy it like my family & i do.
Happy Cooking!
