After the Harvest: Cooking

A key component of our Learning Garden programming is establishing "farm-to-plate" connections between the kids and the food they eat. By working directly in the garden and allowing the kids to cook up their own healthy snacks in our outdoor kitchen, they are better able to understand and appreciate how food is grown, distributed and prepared, as well as its nutritional significance to human health.

All of our snacks are vegan and are mostly free of nuts and seeds. If you have a particular concern about your son or daughter, please contact Jericho (jericho@communityfarms.org) so that we can do our best to accommodate your child's needs.
