Field House Farm is happy to announce the schedule for a new cooking class series for children, as an extension of its existing Agricultural Program.

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

In the Kids Clean Plate Club, children, will be 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 well being.

There will be two programs: a monthly weekend class for children in grades 1-5 as well as a week-long July program specifically for teenagers. Details are outlined below.
