Garden & Kitchen Field Trips!
Hands-On Experience for kids age 5+ in our Kitchen and our Organic Garden Classroom! Learn to plant, care for gardens, harvest and compost, as well as cook your harvest on-site in our kitchen! Our field trips focus on educating students in a fun and welcoming environment, that is completely interactive. Our recipes are focused on “real” ingredients, with foods sourced from the garden (thus, local, organic and seasonal). Children cook and prepare the foods entirely themselves, in a collaborative environment that fosters knowledge of cooking skills (measuring, chopping, baking, pouring, grating). The curriculum also addresses educational standards for science, math, history and nutrition (specialty curriculum available upon request).
Students (and teachers) eat their creations and leave our Field Trips energized, happy and excited about healthy food choices.
