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

In our Classroom Gardening Program, chef volunteers are paired with elementary school classrooms (grades 1-3) 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.

    I am so impressed. I sure could have used your model 25 years ago when I started classroom gardening in San Antonio, Texas. Trying to be teacher. gardener, and chef at the same time was sometimes a stretch. Fantastic program.
