Gear up for Kids Cooking Camp 2017

This summer, between all the swimming, reading, traveling and running around you’ll be doing, we at Blue Apron are advocating for another activity the whole family can do together: cook! Getting kids in on the kitchen action doesn’t just lighten your load; it also teaches them skills they’ll use for life, creates a bonding experience, builds confidence, and encourages them to learn about (and taste!) new foods.

The Power of Pollination

A couple of years ago, farmer Tony Emmi’s neighbor asked him for a favor. Mr. Winter, his friendly, longtime beekeeper and proprietor of Winter Apiaries—located just down the road, outside Syracuse, in upstate New York—was doing some renovations on his property and wanted to know if Tony would be willing to store some of his honey bees for him temporarily.

The Secret Story of Soil

Chris, the owner of Say Hay Farms in northern California’s Yolo County (northwest of Sacramento), isn’t what most people would think of as a typical farmer. A UC Berkeley graduate with a degree in Philosophy, he’s a brilliantly articulate admirer of soil. Chris wants us to think about “dirt” differently. His main lesson: it’s alive, “a giant living web.” Soil teems with an ecosystem of countless microbes, crucial to growing healthy, delicious produce like Say Hay’s gorgeous orange cauliflower, hearty beets and petite shokichi squash. “Once you kill that ecosystem it takes a lot of work to build it back up,” he says. “It’s not something that you can take lightly.”
