Student Cooking Projects

We wish you could be here to enjoy the delicious smells coming from our students’ cooking projects! Birchtree’s students enjoy baking and cooking as part of their work to develop independent-living skills and pre-vocational skills. Some students create meals and snacks to share with classmates, while others create dishes to sell at The Nook, Birchtree’s student-run school store.

Thank you to the staff at Portsmouth Ford Lincoln, the Portsmouth Used Car Center, and Portsmouth Auto Body Center for a wonderful donation of pots, pans, appliances, gas cards, and shopping gift cards this past holiday season. Our students love working with the multi-cooker, ice-cream makers, and other equipment the staff donated. And the staff’s contributions towards student shopping trips have allowed students to practice their independent-living skills while shopping for ingredients.
