Earth Day at Edible Schoolyard, Berkeley

The Edible Schoolyard Project promotes a transformative vision for what school kids eat. Even though they might not love vegetables, once they plant, nurture, and harvest their own delicious heirloom varieties, children see a bigger picture and their diets improve. Famed chef and founder, ALice Waters says, “I don’t want to tell children what to eat. I want to win them over with taste and pleasure.”

On Earth Day 2015, I was fortunate to get an intimate look at the gardens as a volunteer. In between thinning baby beets and labeling starts for the annual plant sale, I was able to take some photos. I love the handmade signs that the kids make to mark the vegetable beds.
