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.

Presto Pesto!

Great class! Students harvested basil, took the leaves and flowers off the stems and helped add it the blender. Mixed it with walnuts, olive oil and a bit of salt. Presto! Pesto sauce was mixed with organic pasta and cherry tomatoes also from the garden. In general the kids love this program and what they make, but it is inevitable they like some recipes more than others. They loved the taste of basil! Raw and as pesto. As usual children walk away with a copy of recipe and complete a quiz of what they did in each class.
