Garden Kitchen Lab

The Garden Kitchen Lab is a backyard-to-table educational program for underserved communities. Our mission is to give youth and their families access to healthy and locally grown food through starting and sustaining food-producing gardens. This hands-on multi-disciplinary program puts the power in the hands of community citizens, so they understand the link between food production, the environment and their health, and take ownership of their nutrition.

Papaya Coconut Lime Juice Snack

Leave a comment

For this week’s snack I found fresh papaya at the local supermarket. A total find! The children scooped the papaya seeds off, peeled and chopped the fruit, spread shredded coconut and squeezed a few lime juice drops to it. Super simple, super easy snack to make. None of these kids had tasted papaya before, so I will make sure to add a lesson next week on how does this fruit grows, its nutritional properties and where does papaya come from. Also, as part of the Garden Kitchen Lab program, we have been composting for the last month at local community garden and will start our own compost program early this summer.
