Climate Cooking Classes

Prepare a meal using farm produce in this sustainable cooking workshop led by Chef Mollie Kaufmann of World Central Kitchen while also learning from Climate Classes about different ways to reduce the environmental impact involved in food production and consumption. 

Climate Classes and Common Good City Farm have partnered to host a cooking class that will offer attendees a chance to learn about modern agriculture and its effects on the environment, and to become acquainted with local growers who are working to shape agriculture in a way that respects the environment and provides nutritious food for the community. Participants will also have the opportunity to take part in a waste audit and to learn basic composting skills.

The cooking class will be lead by Mollie Kaufmann, a World Central Kitchen chef, and participants will have the opportunity to take a tour of Common Good City Farm with manager Josephine Chu. 

All who attend will be entered in a raffle for various prizes including a tote bag from Common Good City Farm!

Note about Sliding Scale Ticket Pricing:

A sliding fee scale is a tool for building economic justice, and it requires your active participation. If a sliding scale is implemented effectively, everyone pays a similar percentage of their income for the same products or services. A wide range of payment options across the scale promotes broader accessibility, while insuring fair compensation to the producer. Paying according to one’s available resources creates a more equitable system for pricing of products and services.

Sliding scales are often based on individual income levels, with people of higher incomes paying more. However, many factors complicate and affect our financial status. Some groups of people have costs that the larger population does not. Others have access to resources that are not always reflected in their lifestyle choices and income levels. Please consider both your class background and earning power when choosing your payment level.

Consider paying less on the scale if you..

  • are supporting children or have other dependents
  • have significant debt
  • have medical expenses not covered by insurance
  • are eligible for public assistance
  • have immigration-related expenses
  • are an elder with limited financial support
  • are an unpaid community organizer
  • are a returning citizen who has been denied work due to incarceration history
  • experience discrimination in hiring or pay level
  • are descended from enslaved people or Native American Indians 

Consider paying more on the scale if you:

  • own the home you live in
  • have investments, retirement accounts, or inherited money
  • travel for recreation
  • have access to family money and resources in times of need
  • work part time or are unemployed by choice, including unemployment due to full-time school in a degree-earning program
  • have a relatively high degree of earning power due to level of education (or gender and racial privilege, class background, etc.) Even if you are not currently exercising your earning power, we ask you to recognize this as a choice.
