A Seattle non-profit

We inspire and empower youth through growing, cooking, and sharing food.

We engage middle school students (4th-8th graders) through after-school and in-school programs, spring and summer camps, field trips, and evening cooking classes.

Our curriculum-based, pay-what-you-can programs progress from basic food knowledge to advanced gardening and cooking skills.

We enhance learning opportunities by interweaving food growing and cooking with academic subjects such as math, science, and history — practice baking skills while learning about the science of liquids and solids!

Our youth eat a snack or meal during programming and often to take home a sample of what we cook together, as well as vegetables we grow in the garden.

Fall Garden Gathering

Saturday November 16th

11:00am to 3:00pm | A free, family-friendly event in the Green Plate Special garden

We're so excited to host our first annual Fall Garden Gathering! 

It's a chance for members of our community to connect over candlemaking, putting the Green Plate Special garden to bed, and soul-warming soup. It can be an excellent opportunity for volunteer service hours, a solid workout, or just the perfect time to grab some good food and socialize! We invite you and your family to enjoy this afternoon with us in whatever capacity suits you best.

Please RSVP for this event so we can make sure we have enough food (and candle wax!) for everyone by emailing us (diggit@greenplatespecial.org) or marking yourself as "going" on the Facebook event:
