The Edible Schoolyard is a one-acre organic garden on the site of Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School in Berkley, CA. Each student there takes part in classes in both the garden and the kitchen, learning about the origins of foods and then getting the opportunity to create delicious meals with those foods. It was started in 1996 by Alice Waters, author of 'The Simple Art of Food'. The long term goal of this project is to develop a nationwide curriculum that would inspire kids to love healthy foods. I am looking forward to supporting this event.
