This workshop is part of the *My Raggedy Herbs Culinary Kids series.
Discover that food is only as good as the soil that it’s grown in and that real gardeners don’t try to grow healthy plants but healthy soil. Feel the difference between sand, dirt and mud and then have fun on a group led nature hike where you will gather all of the “ingredients” that you will need to whip up a whole outdoor kitchen full of dirt donuts and mud pies. This will be the BEST old-fashioned mud pie making event you’ve ever seen! Enjoy making a messy (and yummy) snack, listening to a silly story and working in the My Raggedy Herb Kitchen garden. Future vegetable gardeners are being made here!
*My Raggedy Herbs Culinary Kids Se...ries: According to the Farm Bureau (2016) the average person is 3 to 5 generations removed from a family farm. So, what does this actually mean? It means that most kids don’t know where their food comes from, how many eggs a chicken lays a day or what really takes place on a farm. Lori Coats, owner of My Raggedy Herbs, is out to change that as she allows kids to visit her herb farm in Tuttle, Oklahoma to learn about food sources and vegetable gardening up close and personal. Once a month, during the summer, kids can come learn age-appropriate gardening and cooking skills, make nature crafts, enjoy story time, pet farm animals and play outside. During these outdoor classroom experiences kids will discover where their food comes from, the importance of taking care of plants and animals that are future food sources and how to begin cooking for themselves. Children are asked to wear their play clothes.
