TC partners with the Edible Schoolyard NYC to create garden- and classroom- based food curricula. In October, P.S. 216 launched its Edible Garden, a quarter-acre lot recently transformed from asphalt to work- and plant-friendly soil.
“The Edible Schoolyard NYC program improves the way our children eat by helping them learn where food comes from and how healthy food can be delicious as well as nutritious,” said Christiane Baker, Edible Schoolyard NYC Executive Director and a current TC nutrition student. TC’s Nutrition Education program is partnering with Edible Schoolyard to develop curricula in a range of subjects to support both garden- and classroom-based learning.
