Chris Belloste Jr. showed off the knife skills he has learned in the CitySprouts program.

Cambridge kids ages 11 to 15 have been learning to grow and cook fresh food this summer as part of a group called CitySprouts, which educates kids about fresh food and shows them how to create school gardens.

The kids, who are students at King Open School of Cambridge, showed off their skills at the Kendall Square Farmer's Market this week. They did a cooking demo for the farmers and people at the market. They cut and peeled carrots for visitors to eat, displayed their homemade pesto, and answered questions about their gardens.



CitySprout gardener Tiris McClure checked out the radishes at the Lanni Orchards stand.

It was also a great chance for the CitySprout kids to visit the different vendors there, such as Lanni Orchards, Flats Mentor Farm, and Cape Cod Fish Share, to ask them about their businesses and see first-hand how farmers sell their products.



Some CitySprout workers visited the other stands at the Farmer’s Market.

Is your child interested in gardening and cooking? How do you teach your child(ren) about both?
