Youth Cooking Camp: Farm to Table (Aug 19th - Aug 23rd)

In this truly Saskatchewan camp we’ll explore the different areas of farming and growing your own food. Campers will start the day with a brief lesson on local ingredients and then put the farm-fresh ingredients to use in delicious dishes. Topics covered will include an all-Saskatchewan line-up of grains and pulses, meat and protein, veggies and herbs as well as cherries and berries.

The group will embark on a mid-week field trip to see some local food being grown at the Askîy Garden (https://www.chep.org/program/askiy-project-urban-ag/). The young chefs will learn about this important urban agriculture initiative and spend some time helping tend to the garden and picking fresh herbs and veggies to use back at the kitchen.

Times: 9:00AM to 12:00PM

Ages: 11 - 14

Cost: $350 + gst

  1. Broaden perspective regarding the diversity of Saskatchewan food production
