Team Davis offers really fun nutrition classes, co-sponsored with the UC Davis Nutrition Department. Director of Sports Nutrition, Dr. Liz Applegate, designed this class for us and Nutrition Department PhD student, Eric Nonnecke, is now our lead instructor. Eric supervises a number of UC Davis nutrition students who help create new learning activities every semester. Classes alternate between learning in a classroom at Holmes Junior High where we make nutritious meals together and hands-on learning in our vegetable garden on the UC Davis campus. These classes are held every other Saturday during the school year.
Yes, Team Davis has its own vegetable garden! The garden is located on the UC Davis campus near the Domes. Our Team Davis Garden coordinator is Peter Buck. A number of Team Davis participants and their families also help out during occasional work parties. Volunteers and families are invited to enjoy produce from our garden.
