Outdoor food prep station? Check!

I mentioned that Whole Foods Foundation and Food Corps funded an outdoor food prep station in the garden.  To review, this is what the area looked like before:


A deck was built to fit the space…


…and a split-level “food prep station” added!  (The two levels are for lower and upper grade-sized kids.)


Stainless steel sinks can be used to wash produce with fresh water from dispensers.


Buckets in cabinets below catch the water to reuse on plants.


Sinks can be covered with cutting boards to increase work space.


Both sides have electrical outlets for simple appliances, such as our pizza oven and wok.  We also purchased a solar over.  I’ve been keeping my eyes open at garage sales for other tools such as a salad spinner and a flat grill/panini press.


The stage is set for great culinary and educational outcomes!

  1. T,
    I’m reminded when the D and I visited the house with the “Kitchen Garden” where General Washington was hanging out in New Jersey in 1775. Now that’s a culinary education.dad
