We’re kicking off December with a festive, holiday vibe! Join us for upcoming events and opportunities to invest in your wellness, mental health and recovery. We are grateful for our community!

Wreath Making Experience This Weekend!


Create Kitchen & Bar will be hosting CHOW for a wreath making event on Dec 3rd at 3PM. $50 gets you a handmade wreath, instruction, and an afternoon of zen that will last a year! 

Kalyn, our instructor, is an urban homesteader and a founder of Sideyard Sprouts. She and her husband have spent the last five years transforming their backyard into a thriving garden complete with vegetable and flower gardens. A backyard flock of hens, ducks and two beehives round out their quarter-acre homestead.

The prolific nature of their yard and excess goods spurred the idea of starting a weekly Farm Cart to help bring their harvests to the community. In 2021, the farm cart became a reality and SideYard Sprouts was officially born.

Today, the cart brings plant starts, home grown produce, flower bouquets, eggs, honey, and other seasonal goodies directly to their neighborhood. Each year, holiday wreaths are a feature of the Farm Cart using dried flowers and foliage from their yard. Kalyn holds yearly wreath-making classes and enjoys sharing her passion with others.

She takes pride in teaching a new skill that can be utilized for years to come.

CHOW Holiday Budget Class

This finance class is specifically designed for food service folks to help them effectively manage their higher holiday incomes.

Participants will learn essential budgeting and savings skills, enabling them to make the most of the festive season’s earnings.

By the end of the course, students will be equipped with the knowledge and tools necessary to plan and save wisely, helping their financial wellbeing beyond the holiday season.

Join us on Zoom or in person at Ace Eat Serve!

This class is hosted by Jessica Dean @the.financial strategist.

About Jess:
I found Wealthwave, in the form of an old co-worker who started part time in finance to make some extra money, when I was a broke and struggling to save Sous Chef. All I wanted was to one day open my own private chef business. I found the financial help I deserved and became a client first.Then I saw much more potential to help the people just like me who had always struggled and deserved guidance as well. This is my passion now to help those who live on tips, maybe makeminimum or a low wage, and are navigating things like COVID that struck this industry the most, because I understand what it’s like to live and breath the food service industry. My goal is to make financial independence more accessible to those who need it and deserve to have it by giving them guidance, resources, and a comforting hand to hold along the way.
