There are few things in life more rewarding and delicious than eating a fresh, homegrown meal. In this camp, we will get to know the foods growing in our gardens. These foods will be our muses as we explore a variety of recipes to create a garden inspired meal. We will:
- Spend the week exploring the stories of our food, the relationship between humans, garden ecosystems, and sustainable local food systems.
- Using safe cooking techniques, campers will practice chopping, slicing, grating, measuring, and mixing.
- Learn how to read and craft a recipe while thinking about seasonal availability and different flavor combinations.
- Steward and care for our food growing spaces through garden care and farmwork. At the end of the week, we invite families to come and enjoy the garden to table experience. This camp is perfect for the budding young chef!
Cooking camps are a smaller group size and have an additional cost for supplies.
