Upcoming Events, Announcements, and Acknowledgements

Martha Culbertson has studied with some of the world’s most celebrated cooking teachers: Julia Child, Jacques Pepin, Diana Kennedy and Simone Beck. Living abroad, traveling extensively and always looking for new food experiences has given depth to her teaching. Martha’s classes are intended to expand culinary horizons. They are developed for people who like to cook and want to get better by learning new skills and who will enthusiastically explore food from all over the globe. Her classes were named “Best Cooking Classes” by the Press Enterprise. These classes are VERY popular and sell out quickly. If you would like to take any or all of her classes, you must act fast. They start Oct. 3 and continue through her special Thanksgiving class on Nov. 21.

Our mission: Educate and empower youth to appreciate, preserve and protect nature.

Our vision: Children and youth in our communities will become the new generation of environmental stewards with an active understanding and love for the natural world in which they live. Our unique program of funding and developing hands-on environmental programs is designed to encourage innovative projects that inspire, educate and empower children and youth to appreciate, preserve and protect nature.

We accomplish this…

  • through the hard work of dedicated volunteers, Docents and teachers,
  • with the help of our many partners, from individuals and governments to local nonprofits and corporate donors,
  • and by using an inclusive and collaborative approach to program development and staying true to our six unique core values.
