I have 20+ years of teaching experience. I have gardened and cooked with students in grades K-5. You will benefit from 20+ years of mistake-making.
I view my role as catalyst for learning. I provide the materials and the opportunity for the experience and then the students make it their own.

We provide cooking lessons via a YouTube channel called Urban Veggie School. It is designed to be used by teachers who want to cook and/or garden with their students and by people of all ages who want to learn to cook. Our goal is to help young people connect with plant-based food, from seed-to-plate, and to help them retrain their palate to appreciate the taste of real food, lovingly prepared from mostly plant-based ingredients.
