Seth Peterson’s passions are teaching, cooking, and permaculture.
As a second generation urban gardener living in the heart of Berkeley, my love of gardening is a natural extension of my love of food, of both cooking and eating in community, a love passed on to me from my mother.
My passion for teaching is fueled by fourteen years in Latin America, where I taught English and business.
Since returning to the Bay Area eight years ago, I have dedicated myself to cooking in top East Bay restaurants as well as exploring the local foodshed from Fort Bragg to Santa Cruz.
I combine my twin passions, teaching and cooking, with my experience, to bring real local food to real people, reconnecting them to their local food shed and giving them the knowledge and the skills to prepare good food using traditional cooking techniques that are both healthy and delicious.
