Instruction & Accommodation


garden In a hands-on personal environment you’ll learn why a nutrient-dense diet is essential to good health while preparing delicious, satisfying meals. You’ll become familiar with everything about creating healthy meals: cleaning, preparing, and storing produce, blending, juicing, and nutrient-preserving cooking methods. You’ll learn how to stock your refrigerator and pantry, and how to shop for and order the ingredients you need.

We always use the freshest organic* fruits and vegetables in the preparation of our meals. In season we pick greens, onions, bell peppers and tomatoes from the garden to make beautiful salads and salsas. What we don’t grow, we pick on our next-door neighbor’s organic farm or get from local growers. Broccoli, beans, cherries, peaches, kale, leeks, heirloom tomatoes, peas, blackberries, local mushrooms…
it all grows abundantly in this fertile valley. Paonia is a paradise for lovers of fresh, local food.

Instruction for all ages.
