Our workshop program focuses on fundamental cooking and gardening skills, encouraging a more sustainable lifestyle. In each class, students work together to create a multi-course meal, made from local ingredients. Over the course of three days, students will learn a range of skills including knife skills, how to bake a crusty loaf of bread, how to maintain a culinary garden and how to make a lovely meal from what’s in your backyard. At Salt Water Farm, we cook instinctually, and by the week’s end, so will you.
