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.

Fruits, Veggies & Tech

The kids learned to connect vegetables and fruits to Makey Makey devices and use them as touch-pads. Red and green apples became video game controllers and clickers to code with Scratch. Carrots, celery and potatoes were used to play the piano and the drums. The children created their own connection to Earth by crafting aluminum bracelets and attaching them to alligator clips to make everything work.
