Cooking School Construction Update
November 2020

Groundbreaking September 2019Our future cooking school and headquarters is on track to open in late 2021. We broke ground on this one-of-a-kind project in September 2019.

Construction May 2020






After delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, preparation of the site started again this May.

Construction October 2020






Deep stabilizing pylons were placed in September and October which required a large piece of equipment and lots of earth pounding.

Construction November 2020






Currently utilities are being laid. The outline of the cooking school can be seen where they have built concrete framing and installed beams. 

Urban Farm & Garden Sketch







We’re securing a landscape architect to bring our Urban Farm and Garden to life! In addition, the Building Leadership Talent class at SMUD chose phase 1 of the garden as their class project and will be helping to build out the area in early 2021.
