Edible Schoolyard Berkeley

Address   Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School
          1781 Rose Street
          Berkeley, CA  94703

The garden, kitchen, and cafeteria at King Middle School serve as a demonstration site and innovation hub for edible education curriculum and pedagogy. We have worked closely with the whole school community to connect our one-acre teaching garden and kitchen classroom to the science and humanities curricula taught to all students. Across the playground, a larger cafeteria kitchen prepares delicious school meals from scratch for all public school students in Berkeley, using fresh, local, seasonal ingredients.

Serves as the Edible Schoolyard Project's demonstration site and innovation hub. We have been gardening and cooking with sixth, seventh, and eighth graders and working closely with the school community since 1995.
