Food As Medicine Workshop

November 2

Free

The Backyard Gardeners Network is hosting their Food As Medicine workshop series on Thursdays from September 7 to November 9. The Food As Medicine workshops include 10 weekly nutrition and cooking classes held at the Guerrilla Garden in the Lower 9th Ward. All classes are taught by health professionals, nutritionists, and cooks who specialize in preparing delicious and healthy food.

Participants will learn about food as a primary source of healing while cooking on-site at the garden. The workshop begins and ends with free health screenings from Baptist Community Health Clinic, includes a film screening, a field trip, and concludes with a “Chopped” style cooking contest!

Workshop Schedule:

  • November 2 – “Chopped” Style Cooking Contest
  • November 9 – Wrap Up Session

Exact times TBD
