School Holidays at Adelaide Botanic Gardens
Do your children like mash potato, potato chips and potato fries? This school holiday, they can learn the story of the humble potato through Pamela Allen's children's book 'Potato People' at the Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden.

The Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden is located between the red-bricked Goodman Building and First Creek Wetland at the eastern edge of Adelaide Botanic Garden. This kitchen garden includes garden beds abundant with seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs and a large basket weave dome for storytelling and group discussion.

Story Time in the Kitchen Garden is for children from 5 – 7 years old. Two hourly sessions will be held, on Monday 15 January and Tuesday 16 January, from 10.30 to 11.30am. Booking is essential and can be done online.

Apart from enjoying the potato story, the children will also get to harvest potatoes from the garden to create their own potato people. At the end of the program, they get to bring the potato people home, watch them change over the holidays, and perhaps plant them in the garden and harvest the potatoes for sharing with family and friends.

I can remember making potato people when I was young. It's the simple things that stand the test of time.

I always lament not growing our food when our boy was small. A great initiative to teach children the value of grown food.
