"It all started in 1995 with the idea that we can transform children's relationship with food if we give them a taste of what's possible. To demonstrate this simple truth, Alice Waters (chef, author, food activist, and the founder and owner of Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley) created the first Edible Schoolyard in partnership with the principal at a public middle school in Berkeley."
Suggested donation of $10-100 per person, to be paid in advance directly to the Edible Schoolyard Project. As well as registering on Eventbrite, each visitor must complete a registration on the Edible Schoolyard page and make their donation: https://edibleschoolyard.org/civicrm/event/register?id=979&reset=1
Please join the workplace group which will be used to coordinate travel to Berkeley and keep in touch in the run up to the event.
Travel: depending on numbers and shared locations, sharing Ubers (1hr $50 each way Stanford-Berkeley) is likely best. The roads are chaos at this time so advice is to leave Stanford by 7am to arrive in good time. For drivers, there is plenty of free parking on the street.
Meeting point: main office of the school, located at the intersection of Rose and Grant streets, at 8.30am.
This will allow time to meet, register, collect badges and get to the campus ready for the tour starting at the Edible Schoolyard at 9am.
Numbers: A maximum of 20 people. Family members or non-LEADers can partake
Weather: the visit will take place regardless of visits. Payment is a donation and so refunds will not be given in the case of someone not attending on the day.
