Edible Schoolyards

Chang— who is on the advisory board with other food luminaries—said he emailed A-Dubs early on about getting a new program set up on the East Coast, and she immediately sprang into action. At the event, Waters spoke of the virtues of learning science from omelettes and math from counting plants, and also said she wished that farmers and teachers could be the highest paid workers in the country. Eater NY has photos and more details on the event. [Eater NY]
