Aside from summer camps and occasional community focused events, I do not offer any public cooking classes. Private group events can be found below.

BMK Escapes

It’s time to treat yourself to an exclusive getaway, disconnect from the stress of life and connect with nature, friends and family. 

From spending time at the treehouse, gathered around the campfire with friend or family to wood fired pizza dinners to remember to cooking classes or jewelry making- there is something for everyone here. 

The treehouse is not available for overnight stays. FAQs can be found at the bottom of the page. 

BMK Event Waiver
Please read and fill out all parts of the below waiver.
FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN: BECKY’S MINDFUL KITCHEN WAIVER AND RELEASE In consideration of participating in Becky’s Mindful Kitchen (BMK) activities, and for other good and valuable consideration, I hereby agree to release and discharge from liability arising from negligence BMK and its owners, volunteers, participants, and all other persons or entities acting for them (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Releasees”), on behalf of myself and my children, parents, heirs, assigns, personal representative and estate, and also agree as follows: I acknowledge that participating in BMK activities involves known and unanticipated risks which could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis or permanent disability, death, and property damage. Risks include, but are not limited to, broken bones, torn ligaments or other injuries as a result of falls or contact with other participants; death as a result of drowning or brain damage caused by near drowning in ponds or creeks; (there is a pond on the neighboring property to BMK and shallow creek beds on BMK) medical conditions resulting from physical activity; and damaged clothing or other property. I understand such risks simply cannot be eliminated, despite the use of safety equipment, without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity. I expressly accept and assume all of the risks inherent in this activity or that might have been caused by the negligence of the Releasees. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary and I elect to participate despite the risks. In addition, if at any time I believe that event conditions are unsafe or that I am unable to participate due to physical or medical conditions, then I will immediately discontinue participation. I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless Releasees from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action which are in any way connected with my participation in this activity, or my use of their equipment or facilities, arising from negligence. This release does not apply to claims arising from intentional conduct. Should Releasees or anyone acting on their behalf be required to incur attorney’s fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs. I represent that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may suffer or cause while participating in this activity, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage myself. I further represent that I have no medical or physical condition which could interfere with my safety in this activity, or else I am willing to assume – and bear the costs of – all risks that may be created, directly or indirectly, by any such condition. In the event that I file a lawsuit, I agree to do so in the state where Releasees’ facility is located, and I further agree that the substantive law of that state shall apply. I agree that if any portion of this agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. “By participating in BMK activities , I agree to release BMK, from claims of negligence for bodily injury or death in connection with activities on BMK property, and from any liability for other claims, including loss of property, to the fullest extent of the law.” I agree not to attend a BMK event or send my child to BMK if a fever, diarrhea or vomiting has been present in the last 24hr. I agree to inform BMK of any allergies (food or other) prior to attending an event at BMK and understand that I may need to bring my own ingredients. RELEASE, INDEMNIFICATION AND HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT Activities included but not limited to: Farm animal interactions, treehouse, timber adventures, ninja obstacle course, cooking classes (oven, stove and knife use), obstacle course, trail hiking, pizza oven, zipline, rock climbing, fire starting, hatchet use, knife use, bugs, animals. The above list is not intended to be and is not exhaustive. There may be BMK activities the undersigned participates in which are not listed above; but said activities are intended to be and are included in the terms and conditions of this release. If my child’s behavior is disruptive to others and does not resolve with verbal warnings, I will come pick up my child and he/she may not be able to return to camp. If my actions are disruptive and I am disrespectful to others or the property, I understand that I may be asked to leave and will be responsible for finding a safe ride home and will not receive a refund.  By signing this document, I agree that if I am hurt or my property is damaged during my participation in this activity, then I may be found by a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against the parties being released on the basis of any claim for negligence. By signing this waiver, I acknowledge that I have carefully read it and understand the contents. I am aware that this is a release of liability. If I am signing on behalf of a minor, I am giving the minor permission to participate in classes and events at Becky’s Mindful Kitchen I understand the importance of checking myself and child for ticks.  Further, I grant BMK permission to use photos and/or videos of myself and/or my family taken during BMK activities to be used in its promotional materials, locally and nationally. I have had sufficient time to read this entire document and, should I choose to do so, consult with legal counsel prior to signing. Also, I understand that this activity might not be made available to me if I were to choose not to sign this release, and agree that the opportunity to participate at the stated cost in return for the execution of this release is a reasonable bargain. I have read and understood this document and I agree to be bound by its terms.
Thank you for taking the time to read the waiver and parking instructions! If you do not agree to the waiver, I cannot have you or your child attend an event.

Indoor Events

Where Creativity, Conversation and Connection, come together.

The farm style commercial teaching kitchen provides space for all to get hands on with cooking while also feeling like one is at home.

Promoting other women in business is a passion of mine and I can now offer jewelry making classes and cookie decorating, featuring Paige from Charli Dean Designs and Rachel from Sugar Kubed Cookies.

BMK is a place to gather and connect with those who bring you joy, where laughter flows and memories are made. 

Perfect for date nights, bachelorette parties, girls night out, reunions, birthdays, anniversaries, work parties and more! Contact me for larger group rates. Virtual classes are still available.

All the details you need to knoW!

While there aren’t any bathrooms at the treehouse, you do have access to bathrooms inside BMK. Simple go onto the back deck behind the house and into BMK. The bathroom is down the short hallway to your right. 

Cancellation Policy:  Because I only offer a limited number of events, there are no cancellations within 2 weeks of the date.  If rain is forecasted, the party goes on, simply wear weather appropriate clothing and allow yourself to remember just how much fun it can be to play in the rain and embrace your inner child.  Also- the porch of treehouse is covered and the treehouse is so much fun to play in while listening to the rain.  If the rain is going to be a nonstop downpour or storming, then we can adjust the time of the event if possible and reschedule.

You are welcome to bring in any food or drink that you wish to the treehouse, just please clean up any trash afterwards.  The same clean up rule goes for the treehouse and property in general.  I simply ask that it is left in the same state as it was found.

4139 Crosheck Rd., Solon, IA 52333

Turn left at the big red barn, the first left on Crosheck and head down the driveway. BMK is located around back of the white house at the bottom of the drive.   

If your groups is more than 3 or 4 cars- drive down to the house, circle around and park facing up the driveway, starting at the ‘Park Here’ sign. The driveway has enough room for two cars so no need to park on the grass at all. 

*Please note that the play equipment in the neighbor’s yard is indeed the neighbor’s play equipment so please do not allow your kids to go into their yard. 

BMK eggs are available for scale for $4/dozen. All proceeds go towards funding the free mental health workshop for teens here at BMK. 

Inside BMK’s workshop/coffee lounge, there are a variety of products for sale from local artisans, including the earrings you see me wear in all of my posts from Charli Dean Designs.  New to the gift shop are items for pregnant and new mothers from All Bodies All Births Doula Services. Feel free to check out the items or contact me for custom orders of jewelry, sweets, soaps, bath products and more! 

Yes! One of the most popular options is to bake something that either only takes an hour or requires a rise time (such as for focaccia bread), which allows for time to be split between the treehouse and inside. This also works for a jewelry making class.
