Edible Schoolyard Summer Training
We train educators, gardeners, chefs, and advocates from all over the world to seed and grow edible education in their schools, cafeterias, and communities.

Join us at an upcoming training to learn and share core principles and practical tools for engaging students in academics, sensory learning, and culturally responsive lessons in the kitchen, garden, and cafeteria.

Read what training attendees had to say about their experiences:
"I feel this experience was exceptionally inspring and like I was part of something much bigger than myself. I've learned to be more patient, slow down, and invite more conversation in the kitchen classroom."
"It was a fantastic overall experience. The sessions were brilliantly diverse and I enjoyed the hands-on experience. I also enjoyed the amount of mingling that occured and the time that was allowed for networking. I really enjoyed the trainers and admired their diversity and how they presented. I loved how engaging all the activities were. I loved THE FOOD! I loved how each facilitator also shared their personality and stories in their trainings.

"I will always remember the mutual respect that you all have for creating an environment of wonder, learning, respect and positivity! Kudos!"
