Photo Tour of the Edible Schoolyard in Berkeley, Califonia

May 01, 2013

The Edible Schoolyard is a 1-acre (4,000 m2) garden at the Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School in Berkeley, California.  It was founded in 1995 in a vacant lot at the Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, in Berkeley as the brainchild of Alice Waters, owner of the renowned restaurant Chez Panisse, located just a few blocks from the school. I was delighted to be able to visit the garden last month for two reasons: 1) It's considered to be the most influential school garden project in the United States and 2) It was on my "kitchen garden bucket list".  If you're interested in visiting the gardens yourself, you're more than welcome to after 3pm. You can find them here on Google Maps.  Below are some photos which will hopefully inspire some ideas you can incorporate into a garden near you.
