Growing Chefs!

Growing Chefs! Chefs for Children’s Urban Agriculture gets kids excited about good, healthy food.

In our Classroom Gardening and Cooking Program, chef volunteers are paired with elementary school classrooms (grades 1-3 for the primary program, 4-6 for the intermediate) to give students hands-on experience growing and cooking their own food.

How it works:

- Over the course of three and a half months, the chefs visit the classroom every two weeks, helping the students plant and tend to indoor vegetable gardens.

- The chefs engage the students in games, lessons, and activities focusing on plant growth, local and urban agriculture, sustainability, and nutrition.

- The students harvest their vegetables, and the chefs teach them to cook delicious, healthy meals with what they have grown.

The Growing Chefs! Classroom Gardening and Cooking Program runs the Primary Program (Grades 1-3) from March to June and Intermediate Program (Grades 4-6) from September to December.
