Outdoor Classroom Book Tour
Book 2: Edible Schoolyard: A Universal Idea
Our Outdoor Classrooms Library is growing. I am thrilled to be sharing another wonderful book on our Outdoor Classrooms Book Tour. These incredible resources are a sneak peak into what the Teaching In the Dirt: Designing Outdoor Classrooms E-Course https://www.outdoor-classrooms.com/e-cours is offering. I have chosen Edible Schoolyard: A Universal Idea by Alice Waters as our second book on this awesome book tour.
Every Child’s Garden and Outdoor Classroom hold stories about how they began. The Edible Schoolyard book tells the story of how Alice Waters, a group of teachers, volunteers and a principal transformed an abandoned playground at the Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, in Berkley, California, into an Outdoor Classroom. The focus of this Outdoor Classroom is on growing food. Furthermore, has grown into a universal idea called Edible Education, which integrates academic subjects with growing, cooking and sharing healthy food.
This book if full of beautiful pictures and is described as a “visionary model and call to action.” Edible Schoolyard tells a story and offers inspiration for educators interested in creating Gardens that Feed. It does not offer a step by step guide; however, is a fantastic resource for inspiration.
Some interesting answers to the question,” What have you learned in the kitchen?” from Edible Schoolyard students.
“ I have learned that vegetables are better than I thought.” David P.
“I learned how fun washing dishes can be.” Aaron
“Learn to cook food without burning it. I learn the value of food.” Nick
A great gift for your favorite Natural Teacher!
