Hawthorne Valley Place Based Learning Center announces publication of Farm Cookbook


GHENT – Hawthorne Valley Place Based Learning Center (PBLC) announcea the publication of “The Children’s Cookbook: A Collection of Favorite Recipes From Our Farm Camps and Visiting Students Program.”

The recipes in the cookbook were developed by Michele Kowalski, PBLC chef and kitchen manager, to utilize farm-fresh ingredients to bring the Farm to everyone’s tables. This cookbook is available on a sliding scale of $10-$20 in downloadable PDF form and a $30 e-book/spiral-bound hard copy option. All proceeds will go toward supporting the Place Based Learning Center’s efforts to continue to create and share content and activities from around the farm for all to enjoy from their homes during this time of physical distancing.

For nearly 50 years, the PBLC has welcomed children to Hawthorne Valley Farm for immersive learning experiences that include gardening, animal care, natural crafting, culinary activities, and more. PBLC’s programming has been a cornerstone of Hawthorne Valley’s work to cultivate children’s innate curiosity and their relationship to nature. Their main programs include residential and day summer camps and the Visiting Students Program that includes week-long visits from regional grade school classes.

“A key part of our programming is the act of sharing meals together,” says Matt Davis, Director of Place Based Learning. “We are excited to share our favorite recipes and encourage families to make and enjoy these meals together. Especially at this time, food brings people together in such a special way.”
