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.

Katie’s Krops Grant

Serenity was awarded the Katies’s Krops grant and the Garden Kitchen Lab will be able to start building the garden! The goal of this program is to teach children how to farm, appreciate and eat what they grow, and give part of the harvest to people in need.  It is this experience, that little by little will make the children understand the beauty of eating healthy and eating good quality food. Serenity, 11 years old, along with the other 26 winners this year, are all  featured on the Katie’s Krops site this month. http://www.katieskrops.com/apply-for-a-grant.html. She was also awarded a Leica photo camera and she will be documenting how the veggies grow through the summer. We can’t wait to see how our crop turns out!
