A Seattle non-profit

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

We engage youth 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.

Introducing baby chicks to the adult flock

In late March, we adopted four baby chicks to add to our existing flock. We introduced them to the adult flock in the first week of June, and they have been on an adventure ever since! We capture these lovely moments and upload them on Instagram. Follow us to stay informed!

Additionally, you can sign up for chicken care volunteering and experience the joy of being with the chickens!

Youth garden Volunteering

From April 7 to the end of the school year (June 16), we offered volunteer slots for middle and high school youth every Wednesday from 3 to 5 pm. They helped us harvest produce, plant and tend seedlings, care for our chickens, and more. We are so grateful to all the families who shared their youth with us and filled our hearts with immense love and joy.

We are planning to make more volunteering slots this summer. Keep your eyes on the link here.
