SEED TO PLATE

Our Seed to Plate program is a cooking and gardening series aimed at Ypsilanti students pre-K through 12th grade. Through interactive lessons, youth harvest food from school and community gardens and use seasonal recipes to prepare fresh food. Additionally, youth learn about where and how to access fresh, seasonal food in their neighborhoods.

Through this program we partner with:

  • EMU Bright Futures
  • Parkridge Community Center
  • Sauk Trail Community Center
  • West Willow Community Center
  • Ypsilanti Community Schools
