About the Program: 

In 2009, Larchmont Charter was selected by Alice Waters to spread the roots of the Edible School Yard Project in Los Angeles. The ESY Project at LCS supports constructivist learning through hands-on experiences in gardening and cooking classes, and nourishing foods shared around a common table. This edible education fosters appreciation of how the natural world sustains us and inspires students to be advocates for the well being of our school community, the environment, and all living beings.
