Welcome to The Garden Kitchen
The Garden Kitchen offers seed-to-table gardening and cooking education, nutrition education, and physical activity opportunities. We work with community members as well as organizations and governments to deliver this programming throughout Pima County.
As a seed-to-table program, our aim to increase families’ food security, the availability of healthy foods, and opportunities for physical activity. We want families learn about every step of bringing a healthy meal to the kitchen table — from growing and purchasing foods on a budget, to accessing their local farmers market, how to store foods to preserve their freshness, and preparing quick and easy meals, that the whole family can be involved in making.
We do this by empowering families with the skills and knowledge to make wholesome, nutritious meals on any budget, supporting community gardens, and providing classes on a variety of topics. Our interactive and engaging classes aim to motivate community members, of all skill levels, to jump in and get cooking, gardening, and physically active! Whether you are a beginner or an expert, our goal is to inspire you to make healthy food choices that have a lasting, positive impact on the health and wellness of you and your family. Check out our events and classes tab to get started!
