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.

About the Program

Garden Kitchen Lab is a backyard-to-table, science-based, hands-on educational experience offered at certain recreation centers. An intergenerational, cross cultural educational model that combines urban agriculture, culinary and STEAM disciplines.

This seasonal program provides youth with the skills to start and sustain a food-producing garden, while demonstrating the links between food production, the environment, and their health.
