NEW! Farm to Kitchen Summer Program

Week 1 July 7th / Week 2 July 28th
9:15am – 1:15pm
For students entering grades 8-11
This exciting program provides students with a unique farm-to-fork opportunity to work side by side with farmer Jonathan Kirschner and master chef and Middlebrook School culinary arts teacher Heather Priest, learning to grow and cook freshly-harvested foods. Each day, students will work in our production garden and then use the harvested foods in a culinary experience.

Heather is a winning contestant on Food Network’s “Chopped.” Her love of healthy food and cooking led her to a degree in dietetics and nutrition from Florida State University. Heather honed her culinary expertise during an apprenticeship in New York and many years as a personal chef and caterer in Fairfield County. In addition to helping grow what they eat and developing their cooking skills, students will help run the Ambler Farm booth at the Wilton Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays. Fee: $330/student per week.
