It takes a village to raise a healthy child. That’s why we’ve started Healthy Kids and partnered with the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation to grow a healthy community and share the love of food.

Kitchen

Cooking and preparing delicious meals should be fun for the whole family. Discover recipes and get creative in the kitchen, preparing seasonal food from scratch.

Garden

Learning to grow fresh produce is the first step towards healthy habits. Grow a family of green thumbs with hands on activities for the garden.

Learn

There’s nothing like hands on experience to help you learn. We believe in integrating learning possibilities for kids of all ages in the kitchen and garden.

Schools and centres

Sow the seed of pleasurable food education at your school or centre and reap the benefits of growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing, fresh, seasonal, delicious food.
