We have just finished another great week in the Kitchen and now all the classes have had their first session.

I came across this brilliant commercial this week and thought I would share it here because one of the highlights of the Kitchen Garden program is the eating together.

The kitchen classroom is quite ‘old school’ and very hands on learning.  Because of their excitement about the program and delight in making the food for each other, conversation is free flowing and there is a great sense of unity and celebration at meal times.  This social aspect of eating is a really integral part of the program, and something that is getting lost in this digital age.

I ask you to watch this video, think about it, and try, even if only occasionally, to sit down for a meal with your kids, your family or your friends and make those real life connections.
