News about our school garden in Chevy Chase, DC

It is time for Spring Gardening Chefs!!

Calling all Lafayette 3rd through 5th graders who love fresh food, cooking, gardening, and are looking to mess around in the dirt!  It’s time to sign up for the Lafayette Gardening Chefs!  The Spring session begins Monday, March 12th, in the cafeteria from 3:30 to 5:30PM.

Sponsored by the HSA’s Nutrition Committee, the Gardening Chefs will meet each week to get down and dirty in the garden with Lafayette parent Hope Scheller, working the soil, planting, and harvesting.  The kids will prepare fresh recipes and learn some true culinary skills with visiting chefs from around the city. The club will end on June 4th with a delicious meal prepared by the budding chefs as they apply what they’ve learned for their parents and/or guardians.  Each member will receive their own custom apron and a cookbook filled with the delicious recipes they prepared during the session.

The club will meet for eight weeks every Monday school is in session, starting March 12th and ending June 4th. There is a $100 fee per student which will cover the cost of ingredients, garden supplies, aprons, and our recipe books. There will be NO classes on April 2, 9, 16 or May 21 & 28.

Due to the hands-on nature of the Gardening Chefs, space is limited to 12 students for the Spring session.  To sign up, please fill out and submit the Gardening Chefs registration form for your child, along with your check made out to “Hope Scheller” and drop it in the Gardening Chefs Box in the Great Hall.  You will receive a confirmation email within the next couple of days.  Questions?  Please contact Gayle Moseley ( or Hope Scheller (
