Good News and Good News!
We have some Good News to share! The Learning Kitchen has found its new owner — Beth Lord. Beth and I have known one another for years. I taught at her shop/kitchen in Virginia Highlands years back so Beth is not new to the whole workshops/ kitchen world, and she is excited to bring new energy to the next chapter of The Learning Kitchen.
And the other Good News: Tom and I aren’t going anywhere! With Beth taking over the day-to-day operations, we look forward to continuing our regular classes and workshops; and this will allow us to come up with some new ideas as well!
About Beth: Beth recently started a catering company called The Manzana Tree. Beth’s vision for The Manzana Tree goes hand in hand with the mission I’ve held for The Kitchen.
In her own words: “I am a creator and builder. I am happiest when I am working with my hands and sharing my talents with others. My two greatest teachers are nature and community. I have a love of just about everything domestic and a passion for simple design and clean food. Building on what Lyn has so lovingly created, The Learning Kitchen Vol. 2 will offer new workshops, events and programming for kids. A new website and a brighter physical space are just around the corner. Plus expanded rosters of classes, collaborators, and events. I hope you will join me in our new kitchen.”
The transition to new ownership will be slow and steady. Beth and I will be working together through the remainder of the year while we wrap things up and put new processes and procedures in place.
Feel free to reach out at any time. You can reach Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-313-0004. And feel free to write me with any questions or concerns: email@example.com.
