I was pretty excited when SlowFood LA announced yesterday that Alice Waters would be speaking about edible education and school gardens here in Santa Monica on May 19. The event, which benefits Canyon Charter School will include a presentation, book signing, and Q&A with Ms. Waters and 15 year-old Sam Levin, who founded a sustainable garden for his public school in Western Massachusetts.
Tickets and complete information available here.
Watch a sneak preview of Alice’s new book, The Edible Schoolyard, a Universal Idea:
Get your edible garden groove on the weekend before the celebrated Berkley chef comes to town, with Gardens of Gratitude’s 100 Garden Challenge! The goal: plant 100 victory gardens and transform LA’s Westside to an edible paradise of fruits, berries, nuts, veggies and flowers!
For more information about Gardens of Gratitude, and to find out how to participate in the event May 16-17, visit the 100 Garden Challenge, here.
I can’t think of a more perfect activity do with young foodies, eco-friendly families, and anyone Growing Up Gourmet!!
