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.

Kitchen Tour

Thursday 4

An animated tour of Green Plate Special's kitchen written by a program educator, Emma Sum! "Our beautiful garden is our pride and joy, and anyone can come in and walk around during the week! We enjoy getting to chat with folks around the neighborhood and hope that our garden space can be a safe and welcoming space to all. But as we’ve been staying inside more, I realized... some of our friends don’t get to see where the magic happens: the kitchen!"

Climate Depression: Confronting Eco-Anxiety In the Age of Crisis

Friday, February 28th, 7pm-9pm at PACCAR Theater

Cost: $5 (free with Pacific Science Center membership)

Terms like “eco-grief,” “climate depression” and “pre-traumatic stress” are becoming increasingly common. Meanwhile, frontline communities—particularly poor and historically marginalized groups—are experiencing the brunt of climate disruption and suffering from significant mental health impacts.

In this talk, Dr. Jennifer Atkinson discusses the emotional dimensions of our climate crisis and share strategies for addressing grief and anxiety over environmental loss without retreating into despair.
