The skilled chefs of Arlington's Sushi Rock will walk you through the steps to create the kind of fresh and flavorful rolls that have propelled their red-toned restaurant to become a favorite among the Northern Virginia crowd. After learning what to look for when buying fresh fish and veggies you'll learn the basics of sushi rolling, rice cooking, and knife skills, and then get to dig into your hand-made rolls and salmon nigiri paired with sake tastings.

Kate Lee of Capital City Farm Co. will sow the seeds of excitement as kids use paint markers and googly eyes to decorate their own pot. Then -- with Mom or Dad's expert help -- they'll plant two edible herbs (think basil or oregano). Kids will learn all about growing healthy plants, the cycle of life through composting, and more -- and you'll have gotten your young environmentalist's hands off the remote and into the dirt.
