Hope's Garden

Learning the gardening basics with kids will help our garden to thrive! Gardens is a great place to cultivate a meaningful and fun learning experience for children. It provides children with the opportunity to learn the life cycle process, by which plants are grown, as well as responsibility, caretaking, independence, and environmental awareness.

Children's Cooking Class

Brenda's Kitchen

Cooking with Kids educates and empowers children and families to make healthy food choices through hands-on learning with fresh, affordable foods.The kitchen can be a fascinating place for young kids. Children will see how the dishes they eat are put together through hands-on experiences, which is a great way to learn and feel like they are helping. Children will use their math skills as they help combine ingredients for recipes. Talking about good nutrition and why you chose the ingredients you're using will assist in building a foundation for healthy eating habits.


Parent Academy

Workshops and activities provide empowering information, motivation, and encouragement for the personal and professional growth of parents and caregivers by providing innovative tools and strategies to effectively enhance parenting, student advocacy, and leadership skills.
