The Arc Dauphin County: Horticulture and Cooking Classes

Hosted by The Arc Dauphin County.

A specialized class with a master gardener teaches high school students to learn self-sufficiency skills. By learning to grow various plants, herbs, and vegetables teaches various skills to help one take care of something beyond themselves. Then taking many ingredients the students grew themselves to cook a delicious meal.

While many school systems may have cooking classes, this class is able to offer a smaller setting with more support, normally 4:2, in which students have some level of independence to try activities on their own but an adult close to stepping in quickly.

The mission at The Arc of Dauphin County is to provide neighbors diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities the resources and skills to live their best lives. While the foundation is in advocacy services, they also offer other critical services such as family support services, representative payee services, and so many more.
