Makers Landing has launched its Food Education Programme for children, taking place during the school holidays with the first Mini Makers Food Camp taking place from 27 June to 15 July.
The aim is to empower food innovators, activists, and entrepreneurs aged between five and twelve years.
The programme runs from a Monday to a Friday and costs R1950 for the week. The daily, 3-hour programme starts at 9am and ends at 12pm. Makers Landing is located at The Cruise Terminal, V&A Waterfront.

Hannerie Visser, Makers Landing’s curator says: “Kids will get an opportunity to learn how the kitchen works such as the different utensils and equipment and how to use them as well as kitchen basics such as how to crack an egg, setting the table, washing the dishes, roll out dough.”
“We would like to get kids comfortable in a working kitchen but to also teach them how different foods can be prepared. Teaching them how taste works or what it takes to plant vegetables and herbs as well as the importance of not wasting food will be a unique and fun opportunity for them,” adds Henry Matthys, V&A Waterfront’s Social Impact and Food Ecosystem Head.
The Summer workshops will start on 19 December 2022.
