Harvesters, Ages 8-12

About Harvesters

This culinary garden-to-table opportunity introduces the taste of nutrition through growing, harvesting and cooking with fresh seasonal food.  The harvesters develop skills to cook and to bake a variety of recipes, to explore nature on hikes and composting, to play nutrition games that plant seeds of good nutrition.

The 10-week program is offered after school during the fall, winter and spring seasons.  For the summer season, please consider registering for summer camp.   This new knowledge empowers children to make better choices at school and at home as well as build confidence in their choices through sharpening their culinary skills to make meals from scratch with friends.

“At the HealthBarn you are eating healthy to grow a strong mind and healthy body. One of the best things about HealthBarn are the counselors and the friends you are always making. You can always have a great time there making amazing and delicious meals. Also, I love how we make our own recipes and grow our own garden with vegetables and fruit, it makes the food taste fresher. Have fun and eat healthy!”

– A Harvester and Camper

Our chefs in training, ages 8-12 have the opportunity to experience first-hand where their food comes from and why these foods are important for their bodies.

The program transforms children into adventurous healthy eaters by supporting their culinary skills development both at the Barn’s kitchen and at home!
