Mission Statement

The mission of Edible Sac High is to provide students with a transformational experience by giving them the necessary skills, tools, and confidence to make intelligent choices about the food they choose to fuel their bodies, while simultaneously providing the opportunity for teens to develop real world business skills and acumen.

Description

This program is modeled after The Edible Schoolyard at Berkeley’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School started by Alice Waters in 1996: a one-acre garden, a kitchen-classroom, and an "eco-gastronomic" curriculum. The Edible Schoolyard is nationally recognized for its efforts to integrate gardening, cooking, and sharing school lunch into the core academic curriculum.

The Edible Sac High garden initially involves 90 students, or 10 percent of Sac High’s student population. Eventually, Sacramento Charter High School will have a cafeteria run like a business with full involvement by the students.

Edible Sac High is a program of Greenwise Joint Venture.
