Through the Biology and Health classes we will offer a  series of gardening and cooking lessons that meet CA state science and health standards.  During the academic school year, biology classes visit the garden and cooking classroom for a total of 8 two hour hands-on lessons.


These garden-based lessons include:

  • Educational gardening activities
  • Science lessons
  • Nutrition workshops
  • Fun, hands-on cooking classes
  • Culturally diverse ingredients and recipes

The goals of our garden-based cooking program are to:

  • Increase knowledge about nutrition and healthy eating habits
  • Teach skills in healthy meal preparation, using seasonal fresh produce
  • Promote the benefits of growing food in a community garden and/or  home garden
