Here are the first places I found to do each of these things:

Cooking - In Riverwood, in Alvor's house. There are plenty of ingredients around his house also that you can freely take

Woodchopping - In Riverwood, it's pretty hard to miss the huge pile of logs. There's a Woodcutter's Axe on a table nearby.

Mining - Halted Stream Camp is just to the north of the city of Whiterun. The inside of the camp is a mine, with a pickaxe and iron ore veins just past the entrance. In Whiterun, join the Companions (easy to do, 10G for that itself). Farkas may give you a quest to clear out the Halted Stream Camp. There's also a Redguard in town who will give you a quest "Find Amren's Family Sword" if you don't feel like joining the Companions, or want to be efficient.

There is also woodcutting at Halted Stream Camp, if you missed it in Riverwood.

(The rest of Halted Stream Camp might be a little too tough for low levels though, just as a warning)
