The Ger-Nis Summer Social club aims to get us like minded foodie folks together for sustainable foodie fun and learn all there is to know about our own backyards as well as who resides in them. Our own managing director, Nissa Pierson is a born beach bum, hailing from California and an avid surfer not to mention she would live in the water if she could! For this club she takes us on a journey to her close surfing beach for some surf lessons as well as food and drink. So if you haven’t made it to the beach yet or if you haven’t surfed before, now is your chance! Pack up your car or jump on the A train and head to Rockaway Beach with Nissa & Ger-Nis as we learn to shred it on the board and talk our sustainable foodie talk on the beach! Load up with water and sunscreen as this day is going to be a scorcher and one you will not forget! We will provide about 5 boards for the day as well as basic surf lessons! Board rentals available at Boarders Surf shop in Rockaway. Hanging ten never tasted so good!

Managing Director the Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb Center in Park Slope, Brooklyn, Nissa Pierson, is the utmost of a food enthusiast in the kitchen. Pierson began her food journey as a child in Central America later to open Ger-Nis International LLC, a fair-trade, organic fruit & vegetable distribution company with an emphasis on fresh herbs. To further her desire to teach others about healthy living and eating, Pierson opened the Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb, specializing in a wide range of recreational cooking and educational classes for adults and children; promoting healthy eating and living habits through hands on and lecture style classroom environments. She is fully committed to the community, as well as the planet, focusing on the entire cooking and eating process, from grower to “cooker.” In addition to traveling the world seeking organic and fair-trade conversation for her business, she is a noted cooking instructor focusing on fresh herbs as well as an extremist in proving that the art of eating and cooking well is a relatively simple process and just takes enthusiasm and some tidbits of knowledge. She has specialized in children’s cooking classes for many years and believes children are seeking better food knowledge and is always up for the challenge. Besides being a passionate teacher of fresh herbs, organics and fair-trade, she enjoys spice (in food and life), good conversation and debates, kickboxing, the ocean and surfing, and submersing herself in the food and culture of the world. She loves solving problems and turning lemons into lemonade. Contact Nissa
