Kids Harvest and Cooking Class Sunday January 27th
This product is currently sold out.
Join us for a paired children’s cooking class & garden tour at our Little River Cooperative farm on Sunday January 27th. Bring your little ones to experience the local harvests with culinary instruction by The Cooking Collaborative. Kids will be led on a garden tour with Farmer Muriel, harvesting items such as radishes, tomatoes and edible flowers. They will continue the day with Chef Deanna of The Cooking Collaborative, utilizing ingredients they helped to harvest to create a light lunch.
$45.00 / per child includes lunch for 1 child and refreshments for 1 parent. In order to keep the outdoor classroom vibe educational and not overwhelming social we will be enforcing one parent or guardian per child. We have noticed that when too many parents gather around the work table it can be very difficult for instructors and kids to hear each other and focus on the lessons to be learned from the activities. This class is open for kids between the ages of 5 and 13. All kids must be accompanied by one parent or guardian. Siblings under the age of 2 are welcome to come along, but older siblings are not allowed without their own paid ticket because we've found that they tend to feel left out if they aren't part of the workshop.
When: Sunday January 27th
Where: Little River Coop farm, located at 360 NE 154th Street in Biscayne Gardens (please make note that this workshop is not taking place at our nursery which is the address that comes up when you google our address)
The class includes a garden tour during which the children will harvest ingredients for the workshop as well as taste and smell many other veggies, herbs and edible flowers. The tour is followed by a trip to the washing station to clean veggies and wash hands before sitting down for instruction. Chef Deanna has prepared a hands-on kid friendly curriculum which includes drawing, cutting and chopping, mixing ingredients and helping the chef to complete the menu options. She's created a cute menu for the kids to prepare along with a delightful farm fresh beverage for parents. Before going home each child will have a chance to decorate a terracotta pot and fill it with an herb or edible flower plant to take with them for future meal inspirations!

Signing up is simple! Just buy this web item now (one for each participating child) and mark your calendars. Keep in mind it will be at our farm which is quite primitive; that means it will take place outdoors surrounded by nature and our beautiful field full of produce. Please note that there is no electricity, running water or bathrooms at the farm. If nature calls there are plenty of trees and bushes to go behind. We'll send a reminder email with all of these details a few days before the event.
Due to the size and nature of our workshops and special events they are non-refundable.

If we have to cancel the event you will be refunded for 87.5% of what you paid (we keep 12.5% to cover processing fees). Thanks for understanding!
