In all the years of producing episodes for Growing a Greener World, one theme observed that always holds true: place a student in a learning environment that includes growing plants or gardening, and you can't pull them away. They love everything about it... just don't tell them they're getting every aspect of the core curriculum including math, science, language arts, social studies, nutrition, and more. In this episode, the team showcases the original and world-renowned Edible Schoolyard in Berkeley, Calif. Co-founded by famous chef and school neighbor Alice Waters, the Edible Schoolyard is a world-caliber outdoor classroom where teachers from around the globe come to impart lessons that last a lifetime and extend well beyond both the classroom and the garden.
