Good Foods Class & Gardening

Good Foods Garden Program

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 Assistant Director, Joan S Frank, M.S., R.N., supervises UC Davis nutrition students who conduct the sessions for our participants. Classes alternate between a classroom setting and hands on learning. The students have also put together a great website with recipes, lesson plans and and info about the team. Check it out here.

The 2023 Winter Class Schedule is below:

*January 21st*

*February 4th*

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, assisted by Ron Marshall. 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.

We are very fortunate to have such a committed crew holding sessions over Zoom for the time being!
