Who We Are
The Edible Schoolyard Project (ESYP) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the transformation of public education. We use organic school gardens, kitchens, and cafeterias to teach academic subjects alongside the values of nourishment, stewardship, and community. Edible education provides hands-on experiences that connect students to nature, food, and each other. At its heart is a dynamic and joyful learning experience for every child. The Edible Schoolyard Project was founded in 1995 by Alice Waters, the sustainable agriculture champion, school food reform advocate, and founder of Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley, CA.

When you join our team, you are part of a curious, collaborative, equity-focused team that appreciates creativity and finds joy in our collective mission. We are deeply committed to providing an edible education using a whole-child educational model which teaches life skills, academics, environmental stewardship, and health in the garden, kitchen and cafeteria classroom. Our work environment appeals to those who are self-starters, enjoy working as part of a small team, and are able to communicate and engage the ESYP vision.
