COOKING CLASSES

Throughout the year Pat offers cooking classes for children of all ages. She focuses on fun, healthy, seasonal foods that children can make themselves. Often these classes involve a walk to the garden which is a great way for the students to connect with their food. The classes end with a story relevant to the food that was prepared. Some examples of cooking classes include, apple sauce and apple pie, rhubarb pie, bread, peanut noodles, fresh herb roll-ups, baked chicken fingers, smoothies, and much more.
