This exciting class offers opportunities to learn cooking skills, try new foods, learn where our food comes from, and find out why good nutrition is important! Classes are free, but registration is required. A parent or guardian must stay with the child during the program. Recipes are subject to change based on the availability of seasonal fruits and vegetables from Mercer’s Vegetable Garden. Space is limited, call 713-574-4160 to register!
Each year, with support from The Mercer Society, Mercer hosts a Summer Camp for children to explore nature through hands-on activities and games.
