The Edible Schoolyard
September 28, 2007 - Alice Waters, the founder of the "Edible Schoolyard" movement, spoke at the dedication of the pavilion at the St. Peter Claver / Myzeek Middle School Community Garden, 526 Lampton Street, Louisville, Kentucky. Ms. Waters spoke to the need to create a new generation of gardeners through school - community partnerships, and the need for national leadership to recognize the central value of community based food in the U.S.
Ms. Waters is the owner of the renowned Chez Panisse in Berkley, California, one of the first restaurants to promote local and organic food, revolutionized American cooking by introducing " California cuisine" and is a leader in the global "slow foods" movement. Ms. Waters was in Louisville as the featured speaker at the ninth annual Healthy Foods, Local Farms Conference on Sept. 29 at Bellarmine University in Louisville.
Jim Busch, the Garden Site Manager at the St. Peter Claver Community Garden and Chair of the Jefferson Co., Kentucky Agricultural Extension Committee, explains the relation of the Claver garden to the nearby Myzeek Middle School and the surrounding neighborhood of Smoketown and discusses the future of urban sustainable agriculture.
