I had to show you this gorgeous garden in Greensboro, North Carolina and get this – it’s just for the adorables.
This month, the Greensboro Children’s Museum will become the first museum in the country to have an Edible Schoolyard (ESY) and the first one geared specifically for elementary school students.
Affiliated with Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse Foundation and the original Edible Schoolyard Program in Berkeley, Calif., the Greensboro program will serve as a national model for other museums and institutions promoting health and wellness in our adorables and young families.
Featuring gardens, a greenhouse, teaching kitchens, composts and even a chicken coop, the half-acre ESY at the Greensboro Children’s Museum (GCM) will serve adorables under 10 throughout the local community.
Local adorables will learn where food comes from by planting, growing, harvesting and preparing food simply and nutritiously. Ongoing programs, camps and field trips will offer children the opportunity to participate in a “seed to table” experience, nurturing their minds and their bodies.
The ESY will expose the adorables to healthy eating and balanced nutrition, and teach them about where food comes from – the earth, not the drive-through.
The elder adorables will get to help create recipes and make delicious meals such as eggplant parmesan, pesto pasta and oven-baked pizza, using fresh herbs and vegetables they helped grow.
That’s it – I’m packing my bags and moving to Greensboro. This tent will be my home. For more info, you can visit the Greensboro Children’s Museum.
