About Edible Schoolyard:

THE DELICIOUS REVOLUTION:  What we are calling for is a revolution in public education - the Delicious Revolution. When the hearts and minds of our children are captured by a school lunch curriculum, enriched with experience in the garden, sustainability will become the lens through which they see the world.  — Alice Waters

The Edible Schoolyard New Orleans, part of a national movement of food and nutrition education, changes the way children eat, learn, and live at five FirstLine open-admissions public charter schools in New Orleans.  We teach children where food comes from, how to grow it, cook it in healthy ways, and enjoy it as part of a community.  This is life-changing information that teaches our children and their families about sustainability and our bountiful earth.

Edible Schoolyard NYC partners with public schools to build gardens and kitchen classrooms where children can engage in hands-on learning. Our goal is to provide students with the knowledge, skills and environment required to make healthier choices and change the way they eat...for life.
