Edible Education Nourishes the Whole Child

Few things capture students’ interest more than food. It has the potential to engage all of their senses and link these senses to curriculum. Food turns gardens, kitchens and cafeterias into classrooms. By design, Edible Education is integrated into curricular lessons of all types and focuses on concepts of organic principles, circular economy, systems thinking and sustainable choices. With our growing disconnect from how our food gets to our plate, it is vital that educators bring children to the table and nourish the values of stewardship.
