New date for Kids Clean Plate Club

Field House Farm is happy to announce a new date for our popular cooking class series for children. The next class will be held on May 7, 2017. You may register here.

recipe_for_wellness_logoThe series ise led by Maya Bradstreet of A Recipe for Wellness, LLC, www.arecipe4wellness.com. She’s a health professional & nutrition coach who has led multiple cooking courses in St. Louis, Missouri and now on the Shoreline where she has lived for nearly 3 years. A mom of two farm & food-loving children, her goal is to change the nation’s current food & health predicament through prevention! There’s no better place to begin than with our kids!

In the Kids Clean Plate Club, children are introduced to our food system, focusing on foods grown and raised seasonally on the farm, learning how they might impact their bodies. They will also be taught cooking basics. Recipes and handouts will be shared so that families will have the ability to incorporate the lessons into their own homes. Kids will leave with a love of cooking and the ability to relate food to how they feel in terms of health and mood and overall wellbeing.

DETAILS – Monthly Kids Clean Plate Club Programming:
Two-hour sessions where children will make (and taste!) 3-4 recipes from scratch. Recipes will be seasonal, and dependent on what is available on the farm. When appropriate, we will go to the gardens and hen house to harvest the food products. Tools will be provided.
