Because we want to teach the full cycle of food, from seed to table, we often have experiential (and experimental) cooking classes where students learn to measure, knead, harvest, grind, mix, etc. Click on the links below to see what we have been up to in these gardening classes, and what seasonal/ local foods recipes you can bring into your own kitchen as you learn with your child.
