Edible Schoolyard - update

Today well known British chef, Jamie Oliver, stopped by to visit the Edible Schoolyard. Specifically he wanted to see the children at work in the garden and the kitchen classroom. This photo gives a good look at the lovely room, and take note of the fresh flower vases on each table.

Esther Cook, end of table at right, is the lead kitchen teacher.

Oliver has launched a foundation to lead a "Food Revolution". This effort focuses on getting healthful food into schools, and getting out nutrient poor, over sugared items.
