Kids' Cooking Programs

DK Kids

DK kid’s field trips aim to teach children how to lead a healthier lifestyle through a commitment to making healthy choices and physical activity – a “learn to grow and grow to learn” initiative. The Chef for a Day/Farmer for a Day program blends together health, education, organic growing techniques and eating habits to lead children to a healthier future. Through this program we host school classrooms and private groups for children ages 6 – 12 whose academic and social curriculum fit our mission and community outreach initiatives. Our resident farmer and DK team lead the program.

This fun and engaging kid’s program can be tailored according to the teacher or parent’s preference and can include the following “how-to” activities:

  • Education on healthy habit tracking
  • Learn to read and understand food labels
  • Make healthy choices
  • Learn about pest control and harvesting crops in the Greenhouse
  • Tastings of organic produce from the Greenhouse

At the end of the kid’s interactive field trip, students will leave with a real take-home planting project, 5-2-1-0 materials, as well as a clearer idea of how to make healthy choices and the importance of understanding farm to table practices.
