Botanical Kitchen workshops teach people to cook healthy, in-season food with a functional nutrition approach. We offer “how-to” skills and teach the restorative power of using food as medicine. Botanical Kitchen is on a mission to help fill the gaps in our healthcare systems and empower people to learn to use food as medicine and eat to thrive. We advocate for the importance of diverse chemical-free farms growing vibrant food and healthy communities.
