Kids Cooking Classes

It’s not enough to know that fruits and vegetables are vital to healthy bodies – you also have to eat them! We offer a range of classes to get kids from 2 to 12 years old to taste and cook with produce to help develop the life-long habit of healthy eating.

Broccoli Head Chefs – 9-12 year olds

These 2-hour classes are geared towards 9-12 year olds and emphasize specific nutrition topics, following advanced recipes, and adjusting recipes to your own tastes. All classes are drop-off and include hands-on cooking the students will do, plus recipes that will be sent home. All classes are vegetarian, but may include allergens. All Broccoli Head Chef classes are $40/participant and take place at 37 Wheeler Road, North Grafton, MA. Classes have a minimum of 4 participants to run and a maximum of 12 participants. All proceeds support CHP’s hunger relief efforts.

What’s Cooking

Every month in our newsletter we post a recipe from our cooking classes that you can try at home. See all the recipes here.

Sprouting Minds

Our farms are classrooms where lessons come to life. We seek to give everyone a better understanding of where their food comes from, why fruits and vegetables are important to our bodies, and how we all can build a healthier community.

On and off farm programs

Sprouting Minds is educational programming for all ages. Programs run 1-2 hours (depending on age of participants) and includes a customized mix of activities relating to the season. They can take place on the farm or we can come to you. Program costs vary based on location, length, and scope. To learn more and schedule a Sprouting Minds visit for your group email tori@community-harvest.org.

CRAVE

ClassRoom Agriculture and Vegetable Education is a program in partnership with South High Community School in Worcester. 125 freshmen students participate in monthly nutrition lessons and vegetable tastings, take field trips to our farm, and have access to our produce through the school’s pantry.
