Co-operative Principle #5: Education & Training

Education and training are an important part of a thriving community. The more you know about agriculture, making and sharing great food, and the ingredients for making a healthy community, the more you can make informed choices for yourself and your family. That’s why we put so much time and effort into providing ongoing education and information to our members and the community at large.

Here are some of the ways we support education & training in our community…

Community Classes

We offer cooking and wellness classes in our Teaching Kitchen on a range of topics, techniques, and tastes!  We have 30+ cooking classes a year, most are demonstration-based, including a meal and a recipe book to take home.
