The Edible Schoolyard project is based on the very successful program founded by Alice Waters of Chez Panisse at the Martin Luther King Middle School in Berkeley, California. The idea is to weave food and foodways throughout the curriculum. It has been very successful in Berkeley and we have Alice Waters' blessing to bring it to post-Katrina New Orleans--her first satellite program.
More information is available at the website, www.edibleschoolyard.org which describes the Berkeley schools project. This is an incredible opportunity for the right person. They will have the opportunity to build a program from the ground up, and work with a wonderful school and group of dedicated community people.
