Join Evergreen Chef facilitator, Nyle Johnston, for storytelling and community cooking at this fun program for caregivers and children aged 4–7!
Sniff, taste, touch and play are key ingredients as you and your little one rolling up your sleeves as you learn to mix, grate, mash and then eat your delicious creations using only your hands!
Bring a reusbale container to bring home your creations.
