Improving health and nutrition with farm fresh foods starts with learning how to prepare them.
SCF partners with Cooking Matters Colorado to offer free classes at the DGS Community Farm throughout the growing season. Classes are team-taught by resident Cooking Matters chefs and nutritionists. Each 6-week series is geared towards parents learning to cook with their children. In addition to learning about cooking and nutrition, participants receive a recipe book, all the necessary ingredients to recreate each week’s meal at home, and information about seasonal availability of fresh produce.
Sprout City Farms also coordinates a variety of cooking demonstrations throughout the season that occur during CSA pickup and community farm stand days.
