This program will arm your kids with the skills they need for a lifetime of health!

 The class was so much fun for the girls! They would love to do it again and were bummed when we did a craft project at our last meeting instead of another cooking class! Since your class, [my daughter] has become super interested in helping me cook and will even drink my green smoothies when I make one for myself. She used to turn her nose up at them, but since your class she will drink them happily. It was an amazing experience and having your daughter as a helper is so sweet!

Who are the group classes great for?

  • Maybe you're a home-schooling group. You're looking for a series of enrichment programs. VegeCooking is the perfect solution. Your kids will learn science, math, even geography and botany. You'll never see a group more excited to crowd around a table and learn through touch, taste, sight and smell.
  • Perhaps you're a moms group. You're sick of suffering it out in the heat at the park or going to the Burger King playground. You've decided that if you smell another burger, that your way is to tell them where they can put their burger.  You're ready for something fresh, something different, something both you and the kids will enjoy.
  • You're a school principal or camp director. You're looking to interject some healthy curriculum into the day and actually enjoy an afternoon of calm, normalcy, instead of dealing with the aftermath of a Lunchables-OREO YoCrunch-chocolate milk filled lunch. I'll send you my contact info so you can add me to speed dial.

My daughter's New Year's Resolution was to cook more with mom. Your cooking classes were the reason. Thank you!

The VegeCooking Difference

These aren't your usual cooking classes!

Keep it simple. We won't create complicated recipes that your kids won't be able to replicate at home. 

Completely hands-on. The recipe is made by the kids!

VegeCooking incorporates permaculture principles (caring for the earth and growing food!) and school standards wherever applicable - including science, math and language arts.

Mission

The mission of VegeCooking is to change a child's future for the better. When one child is empowered with the knowledge to take charge of his or her health, that child will inevitably change someone else's life as well. Like the domino effect, together, we've created a better future for our kids - their longest, healthiest life, a heightened sense of awareness and empathy and a connection with the earth. This is a gift that will not only last their lifetime, but positively impact future generations. 

Vision

One day we'll see children choosing fresh fruits and vegetables because they know the benefits. They'll be stewards of our earth and be able to grow and prepare their own food. When one child is empowered with the knowledge to take charge of his or her health, that child will inevitably change someone else's life as well. Like the domino effect, together, we've created a better future for our kids - their longest, healthiest life, a heightened sense of awareness and empathy and a connection with the earth.
