PSA: The edible schoolyard revolution


The Edible Schoolyard movement continues to spread nationwide (and in Hawaii). I recently heard a public service announcement for the The Chez Panisse Foundation that highlighted the program and and why it is gaining support. To listen, click here.

According to the PSA, not only are students growing, cooking and sharing food at the table, but the edible garden is incorporated into the curriculum, so that the children learn biology, health, the environment, science, history, geography, community and cooperation in a practical way, not like reading about something in a textbook.

After starting in a one-acre schoolyard garden and kitchen classroom at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School in Berkeley, California, the program is now being adopted in all the schools of the Berkeley school district, according to the PSA.

For further information call (510) 843-3811 or visit The Chez Panisse Foundation on the web.

For information on the edible schoolyard project in Hawaii, call (808) 885-6085.
