The Edible Schoolyard Project by Alice Waters

Alice Waters is changing the way children eat in Berkeley, CA.  She is a pioneer of the organic food movement, and she founded the Edible Schoolyard Project in 1995 at a Berkeley, CA middle school.  The students will grow and prepare healthy foods as part of their class work.

She claims, "I was worried about the future for our children so I wanted to bring them into a new relationship with food and the environment."

The Edible Schoolyard project now has a network of almost 5,000 school programs, as well as six more edible schoolyards.

She adds, "When children grow food and cook it, they all want to eat it!"
