It seems like we’re always blogging about food in the garden, but it’s because we have not one but TWO regular chefs volunteering at the garden! Here’s Chef Jenny introducing her latest cooking lesson to our young gardeners/chefs.


Fruit and cheese quesadillas! They’re definitely a very simple and kid friendly activity. Most importantly, FUN.


Fruit and Cheese Quesadilla Recipe:


  • flat apple slices
  • raisins (we had golden raisins for this activity)
  • grapes
  • grated cheese
  • tortillas
  • 1/2 teaspoon oil

Directions: slice the grapes into smaller flatter pieces. Take a tortilla and sprinkle the cheese, apples, raisins, and grapes. Heat up and spread oil evenly onto the pan (med heat).  Lay the quesadilla onto the pan and wait til cheese melts. Serve and eat!
