Garden Kitchen Lab

The Garden Kitchen Lab is a backyard-to-table STEAM educational program for underserved communities. Our mission is to give youth 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 children, so they understand the link between food production and the environment, and take ownership of their health.

Early Fall at St. John’s

The children prepare a new plant bed to transplant beet starters using compost and soil donated by GreenThumb. The kids learn how to ferment tomatoes, and to save seeds for next spring. This has been a mild fall, and the eggplant plants, the tomato, and even the jalapeño pepper plants are still giving! We are also pleased to have found a new heirloom tomato in the garden. The kids are carefully documenting how its shape is changing every day! And finally one the kids tell us about how she made a spinach strawberry salad at her grandmother’s home, a recipe she learned during class last spring!
