When Alice Waters opened her trailblazing California restaurant Chez Panisse in 1971, she launched what would become a movement around truly seasonal cooking and eating that could support farmers, communities, and the environment. In 1995, Waters also started the Edible Schoolyard Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching children about food and transforming the public education system. To mark the Edible Schoolyard Project’s 25th anniversary, in this episode, host Lisa Held talks to executive director Angela McKee-Brown about the organization’s history and original school garden, how it has grown its programming to reach thousands of schools around the world, and what the future of edible education looks like.
