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.
The garden tells us, ‘what’s cooking.’ Literally. This week’s beets were giving, and it only made sense to prepare something sweet and cold for this hot summer weather. Kids learned how to make beet-banana-smoothies. Easy and a high energy booster!
