Learning to cook, garden or get a better understanding about nutrition will benefit you for the rest of your life; financially and health-wise. It’s a great time to learn to prepare healthful meals on a budget, as gardening season is in full swing and local produce is abundant and inexpensive.
Local Matters runs a teaching kitchen, the CareSource Community Kitchen, where they teach free and sliding scale gardening, nutrition, and cooking classes in German Village in Columbus. These “Pay What You Can” classes are open to the public and will focus on fundamental cooking classes, learning to garden, fun cooking with the family, and documentaries and conversations about food and culture.
Check out the schedule and register for classes on the website.
