St Joseph's Chelsea

RB Landscapes has designed and constructed an outdoor kitchen classroom, produce area, permaculture orchard and bike storage area for St Joseph’s Primary School in Chelsea. After the design of an open space master plan in 2012, stage one of works involved the construction of an Outdoor kitchen, produce garden, bike storage area and permaculture orchard to support curriculum centred around student involvement with natural materials, self-sufficiency and sustainable practices in the outdoor environment.

The Outdoor Kitchen creates a teaching space, veggie garden and permaculture orchard that can be used by the school to give the students the opportunity to enhance their skills in cultivating and cooking into the future. The outdoor classroom space consists of a group table and cooking facilities including a wood fire oven, partially covered by a weather proof sail. The surrounding produce garden is complete with veggie planters, hot house and permaculture orchard.  An integrated bike storage shelter further reinforces the connection between self-sufficiency, healthy eating and exercise.

The students of St Joseph’s helped plant the produce garden. Richard Bellemo gave each class a guided tour through the new landscape, explaining and demonstrating the aspects of sustainability to students. Students also participated in the hand printing of the seats in the area and by creating a mosaic on the rendered hay bale walls.
