Edible education programs with tools and trainings
It all started in 1995 with the idea that we can transform children's relationship with food if we give them a taste of what's possible. To demonstrate this simple truth, Alice Waters created the first Edible Schoolyard in partnership with the principal at a public middle school in Berkeley. As the idea took shape, a committed and creative coalition of educators, families, farmers, cooks, and artists joined the effort. Involving students directly was key: with their participation, an organic garden took root and flourished as a rich learning environment, while a kitchen classroom brought everyone to the table to share.
