In partnership with Three Square Meals of San Francisco we teach a six-week cooking and nutrition course called Cooking Matters, followed by a six-week companion course called Gardening Matters. Occasionally we combine these two courses into a 12-week series we call Chef in the Garden. At the end of these courses, interested participants can join the Backyard Gardener Network and receive a free home garden installation. Armed with a new set of recipes and lots of practice preparing healthy meals from fresh ingredients, our Chef in the Garden graduates are well equipped to use the produce they grow in their new home gardens.
