It’s holiday cooking time! Fall and winter are a great time to get everyone involved in the kitchen. Join FARMS’ educator, Leslie Wicks, and Youth Program Director, Karen Kleinkopf, for a fall class, meet some new friends and make delicious, healthy food. All classes will use seasonal local foods and will be held in the FARMS Community Kitchen.

Family Chef's Healthy Holiday Appetizers: Dec. 1 5-7 p.m. This class is for children ages 7-12 accompanied by an adult. Recipes will include healthy appetizers using locally grown vegetables that will compliment any holiday gathering. Adults and children will work side by side to learn new cooking skills and try new foods. Cost: $15 per family

Young Chef's Squish Squash: Dec. 2 9-11 a.m. This class is for children ages 7-12. Recipes will explore the many ways to enjoy winter squash in savory and sweet dishes. Children will learn about different winter squashes and how to prepare them. Cost: $15 per child and $10 per sibling
