The Edible Schoolyard is an organization that grew out of a partnership with Alice Waters, of Chez Panisse fame, and Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School in Berkeley, California. Read more about ESY’s wonderful story here. The Edible Schoolyard has recently revamped their website, and it is definitely worth checking out. I am especially excited about the Resource Center. They have resources geared toward teaches, parents and advocates, so there’s basically something for everyone. I took a sneak peak and found the following:
- Jasper is obsessed with music these days, so this “Singing and Learning in the Garden” lesson plan caught my eye. I’ll let you know how it goes.
- I would love to do something like this garden party – maybe later in the growing season with some kids from Circle City Relief? Who’s in?
