Edible Schoolyard Summer Training 2019
Summer Training 2019 gathered 80 educators from 14 states and 4 countries at the Edible Schoolyard in Berkeley. For four days in late June the group shared best practices and lesson plans, learned from one another in garden and kitchen based skill shares, visited local partner organizations addressing food insecurity, used design thinking to reenvision the cafeteria experience, and discussed key issues in edible education including culturally relevant curriculum and avoiding food shaming.
