Family Cooking with Chef April Galilo

Bring your whole family for a hands on culinary adventure! As a mother of two sons, Chef Galilo knows firsthand the importance of passing on cooking skills and kitchen knowledge to younger generations. In a world of busy lifestyles, instant gratification and myriad takeout options, it's a gift to come together over a meal that everyone's helped to prepare. Together we'll make hearty comfort foods that utilize seasonal ingredients.

You and your family will learn about age appropriate hands on cooking techniques; light chopping skills; fine ingredients and flavor pairings; dishes that include seasonal fruits and vegetables to please everyone's palette; and eating and socializing together as a community, as we all partake in the meal that was prepared.

Please join The Farm Cooking School and Roots to River Organic Farm as we proudly host a fundraising dinner for The Delaware Riverkeeper Network.  Chefs Ian and Shelley will prepare a five-course vegetarian meal utilizing produce directly from the fields (BYOB).

The Delaware Riverkeeper Network, run by Maya van Rossum, has been fighting tirelessly to protect our local watershed for more than 23 years.  The role of the Delaware Riverkeeper is to give the Delaware River, and the communities that depend upon and appreciate it, a voice at every decision making table that could provide help or do harm.  Maya is currently advancing The Green Amendment movement, a nationwide effort to advance constitutional rights to pure water, clean air and a healthy environment. Over the past year, Maya has worked closely with New Jersey legislators to advance New Jersey’s own constitutional environmental rights provision, ACR85, currently before NJ legislators.  Learn more about this historic opportunity for the state and its implications for projects like the proposed PennEast Pipeline, and for the rights of New Jerseyans for generations to come.

Maya will lead an intimate and informative discussion on the status of ACR85, The Green Amendment movement, and pipelines that threaten our beloved lands.  

Copies of Maya's new book, the Green Amendment, will also be for sale.
