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.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED 

We'd love you to join us! This page details how to visit or volunteer.  


1. Visit Us in Berkeley

COVID-19 UPDATE:

Due to concerns around COVID-19, we are temporarily suspending public visits to the kitchen and garden classrooms. Our site is located at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School, a city of Berkeley public school, and so we will re-open in accordance with decisions from the Berkeley Unified School District. Learn more about how the district is responding to COVID-19 on their webpage here.

If you would like to schedule a future visit, please send us an email at info@edibleschoolyard.org


2. Volunteer at the Edible Schoolyard Berkeley 

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.

COVID-19 UPDATE:

Due to concerns around COVID-19, we are temporarily suspending our volunteer program. We are currently exploring how we can safely bring volunteers back into our programming. If you would like to be added to our list of interested volunteers for when we do re-start our volunteer program, please email us at info@edibleschoolyard.org. Thank you!

Screening 

All volunteers will be screened according to Berkeley Public School Fund's volunteer screening policy.
