The Edible Schoolyard was founded in 1995 by former Montessori teacher and restaurateur, Alice Waters, at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School in Berkeley, CA and has inspired a network of 5,800 Edible Schoolyards around the globe. This program and our South Stockton Edible Schoolyard serve as the Edible Schoolyard Project’s demonstration sites and innovation hubs. Additionally, we produce extensive curricula and resources available to all, host family focused programming, and welcome guests from around the world for tours, trainings, and workshops.
The broader ESY mission is to use the power of public education institutions to create a system of school supported agriculture which connects regenerative farmers, ranchers, and food producers directly to school cafeterias. We believe beauty is a language of care and that every student deserves access to a free, delicious, and nutritious school lunch that is organically and regeneratively grown by people who are taking care of the land and addressing climate change.
