Meet The Team

Nikki Knaddison

I first taught cooking to students during my Spanish classes as a way for kids to experience culture hands-on. I am inspired by how open students are to exploring the world through food. Through Cooking from the Garden classes I tie together cooking with plants. My love of food gardening blossomed when my daughters were toddlers as a way the girls could experience where food comes from. My garden has expanded every year and includes fruit trees, grapes, berries, herbs, veggies, a pollinator garden, and chickens. I was born in Denver and have lived in Argentina. I have travelled extensively in Spain, Central America and South America.
