The Learning Kitchen @ VYCC - Free Cooking and Nutrition Classes

The Farm at the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps is excited to offer a free cooking & nutrition class to students. Parents and siblings are welcome. Join us for The Learning Kitchen, a six-week class designed to teach all youth how to cook, eat and celebrate food. We try new recipes, learn new skills in the kitchen, and share farm fresh vegetables! Classes meet for 2 hours once a week at VYCC’s West Monitor Barn in Richmond. All students go home with a vegetable share from The Farm at VYCC each week. There is no cost to participate, only a willingness to have fun in the kitchen! 

For more information, or to sign up, please contact Cae (“Shay”) Keenan at caelan.keenan@vycc.org or by phone 248-882-0634. The deadline to enroll is December 29, 2014. Classes begin in January 2015.

2nd Grade trip to Jericho Settlers Farm

On September 26th, the second graders had a blast getting their hands dirty while harvesting sweet potatoes with Christa from Jericho Settlers' Farm. Christa estimated that they harvested between 300 and 400 pounds! Students were excited to return to the farm where they had planted onions last spring, as first graders; although their onions were harvested back in August, we are hoping that students will have the chance to cook with onions from Jericho Settlers' Farm in the future. Additionally, be on the lookout for sweet potatoes on the lunch menu. After the potatoes have cured, Christa said she'd send some down to the school. Lucky us!
