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.

New Garden Kitchen Lab Community

For our last summer class we partnered with Iyaho Social Services, a great organization which offers different services to people with disabilities. This lovely group of students enjoyed an afternoon of harvesting, cooking and preparing their own lunch. A couple of community children volunteered to assist during class, showing that they had learn what the Garden Kitchen Lab program is about. More than that, they were tolerant, compassionate and genuinely interested in helping out. Volunteer educator Andrew Maslowski, a Community & Environmental Sociologist lead the class. Everyone had a good time and we look forward to offer more classes to this new community.
