About The Sylvia Center

The mission of The Sylvia Center (TSC) is to inspire children to eat well through hands-on learning experiences on the farm and in the kitchen. Through our programs, children learn what fresh food is, how delicious it tastes, and how to prepare it for themselves and their families. We teach skills that inspire children to establish independent healthy eating habits – so that they may lead healthy and productive lives.

 

On the farm, children learn about their food from seed to plate as a part of an immersive program where they are able to harvest produce, cook a meal and eat together while looking out over the fields.

 

In 2013, The Sylvia Center at Katchkie Farm reached more than 1,000 children, teens and families — 760 of whom were participants from Columbia County and the Capital District. Also last year, TSC successfully piloted our Seed to Plate program, a series program taught in schools and youth centers that includes a capstone trip to the farm.
