Food For Health

A Seed to Table Class

Food for Health presents a series of classes for parents and their children ages 8‐15. These classes will take families through the steps of planting a garden from seed to preparing a meal from the harvested vegetables. These free classes will be taught by educators, gardeners and chefs from our community. This series of 10 classes will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays starting on May 22.

Plan Your Garden Indoors

Tuesday May 22
4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Why grow our own food? After all, isn’t that what grocery stores are for? We will learn about the good things that fresh grown food can do for our bodies. Then, we will begin planning what we will plant in our garden and learn the basics of starting seeds. How can a big tomato plant grow from a tiny seed? We will plant our indoor  microfarm using organic and heirloom seeds.

PLANT YOUR GARDEN Outdoors

4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

GROW YOUR GARDEN

4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
In July, we will continue to care for our gardens, making sure they stay healthy and happy. We will learn about the necessary role of bees in growing plants and how to identify bugs as garden pests or garden allies.

HARVEST YOUR GARDEN

Tuesday August 7 & 21
4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
In August, we will learn to recognize when our plants are ready to harvest. We can begin tasting what we have taken from seed to table. In late August, we will begin our cooking lessons in the NWTC kitchens.
