It is New York’s first Edible Schoolyard in collaboration with Edible Schoolyard NYC, a founding affiliate of the Edible Schoolyard Project started in Berkeley, California by Alice Waters. Alice developed the “Edible Schoolyard Berkley” a leading model program for edible education where students participate in all aspects of growing, harvesting and preparing nutritious seasonal produce: “Teachers and the garden staff work together to link garden experiences with students’ science and humanities lessons for truly integrated experiential learning.”
