Edible Education 103: Edible Education, by Alice Waters
 
01:29:44
ALICE WATERS, chef, author, and the proprietor of Chez Panisse, is an American pioneer of a culinary philosophy that maintains that cooking should be based on the finest and freshest seasonal ingredients that are produced sustainably and locally. She is a passionate advocate for a food economy that is "good, clean, and fair." Over the course of forty years, Chez Panisse has helped create a community of scores of local farmers and ranchers whose dedication to sustainable agriculture assures the restaurant a steady supply of fresh and pure ingredients. In 1996, Waters's commitment to education led to the creation of the Edible Schoolyard at Berkeley's Martin Luther King, Jr., Middle School: a one-acre garden, an adjacent kitchen-classroom, and an "eco-gastronomic" curriculum. By actively involving a thousand students in all aspects of the food cycle, the Edible Schoolyard is a model public education program that instills the knowledge and values we need to build a humane and sustainable future. The program is nationally recognized for its efforts to integrate gardening, cooking, and sharing school lunch into the core academic curriculum. Alice established the Chez Panisse Foundation—now the Edible Schoolyard Project—in 1996 to support the Schoolyard and encourage similar programs that use food traditions to teach, nurture, and empower young people. Waters is Vice President of Slow Food International and she is the author of eight books, including The Art of Simple Food: Notes and Recipes from a Delicious Revolution.

Google Hangout with Ron Finley and Stephen Ritz
 
39:59
The Edible Schoolyard Project had the chance to speak with two food advocates, Ron Finley and Stephen Ritz, who are changing their communities and challenging our current food system by growing healthy minds and healthy bodies. Featured Participants Steve Ritz is a teacher in the South Bronx of New York. Steve values farming as an education, planting seeds of knowledge, empowerment, academic achievement, and hope within his community. Students of Steve's Green Bronx Machine, born and raised in the poorest congressional district in the country, are learning about food and farming as they become environmental stewards in their community and beyond. Employed students have grown and harvested over 30,000 pounds of produce from mobile edible wall units, green walls and green roofs and have earned a living wage doing it. Steve has earned a variety of awards for his work and is a Green Apple Ambassador for the Center for Green Schools. Ron Finley is an urban farmer and a leader in his South Central, LA community. Ron is also co-founder of L.A. Green Grounds, an all-volunteer group that build gardens, with a focus on creating more green and open spaces in South LA and serving low-income residents and others with scarce access to fresh, affordable food. In 2011, Ron was cited by the City of Los Angeles Department of Public Works for a garden he was growing on an abandoned public parkway. With an outpouring of support from grassroots food advocates--local and no--he had a victory: Los Angeles officials cancelled his hearing and allowed him to keep growing his urban garden.
