She had a long break during the festive season, but the Duchess of Cambridge returned to work with her first engagement in New Year's Eve.
Field girl Kate, who turned 37 last week, is visiting King Henry's Walk Garden in Islington to see how the project unites people through gardening and growing food.
The Duchess of Cambridge was an important element when she visited the community garden in North London, where she was introduced to an outdoor pizza kitchen.
"Pizza outside looks like the coolest thing ever," Kate said as she talked to the local school kids while helping to feed bird feeders with them.
Later, she added that her own children would be jealous when making pizzas with the school children.
She said: "George and Charlotte would like to learn outside the classroom. It's still fun inside, but it's much better out there.
Kate cut a casual figure in a khaki tweed jacket from the Irish label Dubarry, costing £ 399. The jacket proved to be a hit with Kate, having been caught using last-minute Christmas shopping at the Range in Norfolk on 24 December.

She opted for her trademark skinny jeans for today's engagement, she look for when it comes to more casual occasions like this.
In the light of the cold temperatures, Kate added an extra layer in the form of a rust-colored jumper that could be seen peeking out of her jacket and abandoned her signature stilettos in favor of a practical boot, £ 252 (reduced by £ 360) per see for Chloe to muck in with the local school kids.
She added only a touch of bling in the form of a small pair of gold earrings with clad motifs that were framed by her bouncy brunette bangs, used today in loose waves.
Kate's group is relatively casual compared to her sister-in-law Meghan, who yesterday attended several community events in Birkenhead alongside Prince Harry.
The Duchess of Sussex wore an alpine jacket from the Canadian brand Sentaler, costing more than twice the price of Kate's coat for £ 1,085.
Meghan's red coat was worn over a purple 107 lb Babylon by Aritizia dress that accompanied her, and she carried a bag of bowling bags, Gabriela Hearst of 1,695 pounds.
The garden has been operating for more than a decade by community volunteers, with support from the Islington Council.

Kate grew up in the Berkshire countryside and spends her time at Anmer Hall in Norfolk, the cottage she owns with her husband, Prince William.
She has often spoken of taking her three children into the garden to grow her own fruits and vegetables.
This is the first public engagement of the Duchess of Cambridge in the New Year after an extended break for the festive season.
Kate was last seen at Sunday's service with Prince William at Sandringham's estate just over a week ago, but her last official engagement was in mid-December.
She and William visited Evelina's Children's Hospital in London on 11 December, over a month since Kate's last engagement.
The Duke of Cambridge, however, returned to work last week, on January 9, which also became Kate's 37th birthday.
It is believed that the mother of three celebrated her birthday with a family tea party at Kensington Palace.
It is said that royalty wanted to keep the festivities discreet, choosing only a small meeting with her children, George, five, Charlotte, Louis three and eight months.
The Duke of Cambridge spent part of the day at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, where he marked 30 years of service at the London Air Ambulance.

The mother of three is a strong supporter of the positive impact nature and the environment can have on child development.
She demonstrated this through her longstanding support to organizations that include Scouts and Children's Farms for the City, as well as more recent engagements with Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden, the RHS Campaign for School Gardening, and her visit to Islington Community Garden .
Based in a forest, the garden seeks to recapture for adults the sense of wonder and magic they enjoyed as children, as well as stimulating the excitement and passion for nature in future generations.
Wild plants and natural materials will be used to recreate a forest wilderness where children and adults can feel closer to the outdoors.
Kate has worked in collaboration with RHS and Davies White for the past three months and will continue to finalize the project before the show in May.
Sue Biggs, RHS Director General, said: "We could not be more thrilled, or more honored, that the Duchess of Cambridge co-designed our RHS Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show this year with award-winning landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White.
"For more than 200 years, RHS has been promoting the power of gardening and plant cultivation for the environment, for health and well-being and to help people of all ages, from all backgrounds, learn and grow .
"So for the Duchess to advocate this with us, and to continue our partnership with the NHS England, we will certainly further enhance the powerful benefit that access to gardens, nature and growing plants can have for our health and happiness. & # 39;
