Hello Farm Members,
I still remember learning, when I was a young adult, something about other young adults: many of them didn't have the basic skills they needed to survive. We make jokes about it in our pop culture, even: people who get to college without knowing how to do a load of laundry or boil water. People who can't read a map or follow a set of directions. There are lots of reasons why we don't have these skills. We have a lot of support in our lives, and we have the Internet to solve any problems we can't figure out ourselves.
But knowing how to do things for yourself is deeply fulfilling. When we can provide for our own needs, we face the world with confidence and self-assurance. When we give our kids the tools to thrive in the world, we're giving them a lifelong gift.
That's why we're excited about our February 22 Youth Whole Foods Cooking Class. For kids ages 10-13, this class provides a solid foundation for a basic skill they'll use in the rest of their lives. Your child will not only learn how to handle themselves in the kitchen, but also how to pursue a new collection of knowledge. They'll appreciate the work that goes into creating a balanced meal made from unprocessed ingredients, and feel able to do it themselves.
Visit our Workshops & Events page to sign your child up for this empowering experience.
Here's what you'll find in your shares this week:
