Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Waters and a small group of teachers and volunteers planted the Edible Schoolyard in the abandoned soil of an urban middle school in Berkeley. With inspiring images, this work presents a visionary model for sustainable farming and childhood nutrition. 50 color images.

Description:

One of America's most influential chefs Alice Waters created a revolution in 1971 when she introduced local organic fare at her Berkeley California restaurant Chez Panisse. Twenty-five years later she and a small group of teachers and volunteers turned over long-abandoned soil at an urban middle school in Berkeley and planted the Edible Schoolyard. The schoolyard has since grown into a universal idea of Edible Education that integrates academics with growing cooking and sharing wholesome delicious food. With inspiring images of the garden and kitchen and their young caretakers Edible Schoolyard is at once a visionary model for sustainable farming and childhood nutrition and a call to action for schools across the country.
