Edible Schoolyard: A Universal Idea

by Alice Waters

Published by Chronicle Books, 2008

Alice Waters started a food revolution in 1971 with the local, organic fare served at Chez Panisse, her restaurant in Berkeley, California. Twenty-five years later, she and a small group of teachers and volunteers planted the Edible Schoolyard in the long-neglected soil outside an urban middle school. The Edible Schoolyard now offers a unique “edible education” curriculum integrating academics with growing, cooking, and sharing wholesome, delicious food. With inspiring images of the garden and kitchen in the hands of its young caretakers, this book explains the Edible Schoolyard’s visionary model for sustainable farming and childhood nutrition with a call to action to schools across the country.
