Edible Schoolyard Project Summer Festival

Nearly 200 guests joined Alice Waters and the teachers, staff, and friends of the Edible Schoolyard Project in the garden classroom at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School in Berkeley for an afternoon of outdoor cooking and planting activities. Guests experienced the Edible Schoolyard curriculum firsthand through activities like creating spice blends with a mortar and pestle, potting culinary herbs, and making fresh cider with ESY’s own apple press.   Event proceeds supported the work of the Edible Schoolyard Project and helped continue to inspire edible education programming for students and educators. Their network includes more than 6,200 organizations worldwide.
