Our vibrant farm setting allows us to offer classes for kids and adults who get to grow and harvest the food they will transform into healthy meals using delicious recipes that are easy to replicate at home. With our hands-on classes, students learn how to plant, nurture and harvest a garden as well as how to prepare fresh produce and plan quick, easy meals that the whole family will love.
Hope Farms offers a full range of cooking and gardening classes for every age, young and old, as well as Scout programs, summer camps, private classes for team building and birthdays.
At 10:30 every Saturday morning Chef Paris Anton, our Recipe for Success Culinary Director offers a free demonstration of an easy to prepare recipe using that day’s harvest. No advance registration required. Everyone gets a taste.

In coordination with the San Jacinto Girl Scouts Council, older Scouts can pursue their Sow What? Journey badge with this week-long experience at Hope Farms. So What? invites girls on a journey through some big food issues: how and where food is grown, processed and distributed, and often wasted. All individual bookings are coordinated through the San Jacinto Council, but the Hope Farms team is happy to develop a private schedule for your group.
