Nikki Knaddison

Nikki first taught cooking to students during her Spanish classes as a way for kids to experience culture hands-on. She is inspired by how open students are to exploring the world through food. Through Cooking from the Garden classes she ties together cooking with plants. Nikki’s love of food gardening blossomed when her daughters were toddlers as a way the girls could experience where food comes from. Her garden has expanded every year and includes fruit trees, grapes, berries, herbs, veggies, a pollinator garden, and chickens. Nikki was born in Denver and has lived in Argentina. She has travelled extensively in Spain, Central America and South America.
