Education

Three Stone Hearth  (TSH) is the nation’s first Community-Supported Kitchen with core values of earth, health, and heart.  Our work is grounded in shared values of sustainability, health, and community that supports our local food system. As part of our mission, we seek to share knowledge with the community that is fundamental to our work and aligns with our values.  We frequently invite speakers to share their knowledge and wisdom on a variety of health and nutrition topics throughout the year, and have both classroom and kitchen-based learning opportunities.  In addition to classes, we also offer opportunities to come to the kitchen for a tour, or a hands-on day in the kitchen. For those seeking more in-depth knowledge of our business model and the philosophy behind what we do along with hands-on time in the kitchen, we offer one-week intensives. We hope you will take advantage of opportunities to come and learn with us!  Check back frequently to see what our latest education offerings are.  You may also find information about our classes in our weekly newsletter and on our Classes, Education, and Outreach menu listed under the Current Menu tab.
