Hello my name is Mrs. Lisa. I am the instructor for this class. I have been growing herbs, flowers and vegetables since I was a child. When my Daughter was young, I introduced her to gardening. We planted seeds, watered and loved our plants, watched them grow, and ultimately used them in our meals, shared them with family, friends, neighbors and coworkers and used excess to freeze or dry for future use.

Besides basic gardening, I teach baking classes for the department of recreation for my city to children with ages ranging from 5-15. Over the last almost 30 years I have taught cooking, baking and nutrition education to ages ranging from 2-92 years old, privately and in group settings; in person and virtually. My love for baking and cooking started out as a child in the kitchen with my Grandmother.  I went to Immaculata University where I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in food and nutrition science and minored in child development. I am currently working on a Masters in Nutrition in Marketing. Besides a formal education, I’ve also taken a series of culinary classes at the former Le Cordon Bleu-Boston, and many others. Mastering everything from French macarons, to Julia Childs Beef Bourguignon to tamales made from scratch are some of my biggest accomplishments in the kitchen. I own and cook from an ever growing library of cookbooks. Everything that I’ve learned along the way, I’ve shared with others as a food blogger, foodpreneur, educator, recipe writer and more. 

My style as an educator is to use evidence-based teaching and learning skills and make education fun and interactive along the way. My ultimate goal for each class, is to share my passion and enthusiasm and help learners build their confidence and knowledge base of not just cooking or baking, but the importance of respecting food and food science’s place in the kitchen as well as how we function as humans beings.

I love to cook, bake, travel and do anything else that involves spending quality time with family and friends. I am known for throwing great dinner parties. Food brings people together in kitchens and tables across the world. So many discussions happen here, from simple to complex. I've traveled with family all over Europe and the Caribbean and have so many more to explore. I am a wife and Mom of 1. Our Daughter is 25 years old and currently in Medical School to become a Forensic Pathologist. I’m very proud of my family, my life’s work and seeing the transformation of my students from the beginning of each class or session to the end.

Plant growth
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents should oversee their children's gardening projects. We will use our plants at some point when the are ready. We will not use stoves/oven in this class. We will make basic recipes when plants are mature.
I teach gardening from years of experience growing my own flowers and vegetables. As needed I find sources online, from my gardening club and books.
