“I love acronyms, especially one of my own PIONEER. It stands for “Pass It On Now with Enthusiasm, Eagerness and Resilience.” This is exactly what Jackie is doing. We, as a people, are losing some of the skills that bring so much nourishment and delight to our fast-paced world. Regain that PIONEER spirit, learn to savor the really good life, then pass it on to someone you love. Sign up for something special and see for yourself. I’m truly impressed!” ~ Graham Kerr

In the Community


Kids in Grades 4-8 can take classes after school in the Garden-to-Kitchen classroom at the Anacortes Middle School. They have fun learning to use the proper equipment, measuring techniques and cooking methods to create food from scratch. Fit Food classes are open to “bigger kids” at the Anacortes Senior Center. These classes are a great way to look at whole foods in new ways, as well as take new recipes for a test drive!
