At the Edible Schoolyard Project, we love and celebrate the extraordinary generosity of our community. Our community members enable our programs to thrive and grow by giving gifts of time, money, expertise, care, and enthusiasm.

Public Tours

We look forward to welcoming visitors to our program site in Berkeley during our public tours!

This year we are offering quarterly tours of our garden and kitchen classrooms at our program site at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School. There is no fee for attending public tours.

Sign up for an upcoming tour below. All tours are from 9 am – 11 am PT.

If you would like to take a self-guided tour, our garden is open to the public after school hours and on weekends.

Feel free to contact us with any questions by emailing

Volunteers are integral to the success of our program, enriching and enlivening our daily work. Our volunteers ensure that all students have the opportunity to connect with an adult and demonstrate to our students the caring and commitment of their larger community.

Garden tasks may include: weeding, watering, harvesting, planting, and more! Low physical impact activities are always available.
