  1. I am interested in reserving your On the Road to Healthy Living Mobile Cooking School for the evening of April 7th, 2016. Our organization is called Bentwater Volunteer Families (BVF). We are a group of about 25 7th-12th grade boys and girls, along with their parents, who perform community service throughout Montgomery.

    We would be honored to have your program come out and teach us proper food handling, healthy living, and cooking instruction. Please let me know if you believe our organizations are a goof fit. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

      Hi Kellie!

      This sounds like a great connection! We’d love to work together with you! I do have the evening of April 7th open. Usually the classes last about 2 hours and end with everyone eating the food we have prepared.

      I sent you an e-mail with a host letter we use to help explain more about the concept of the Mobile Cooking School. Ideally, we like to do 3 classes to be able to focus on our main topics. The letter mentions that focus on low income areas, but are not at all limited to only those areas.

      Take a look at the letter and see what questions you have. In the meantime, I will pencil you in on April 7th.

      Let me give you a call. There are a number of questions to consider like soil type, acres to be used, are you going to strictly graze or cut hay in the future. We need to look at your goals for the future. – Mike Heimer, CEA – Agriculture

    I am wanting to start a crawfish farm in Montgomery County, TX or surrounding areas. I would like to know how to get started and what I need to do first.
