Great video. I suggest adding a TickleMe Plant to your school classrooms and gardens as they are the only plant that kids can tickle and watch the plants close their leaves and lower their branches right before their eyes. It is a great way to excite every child about gardening and nature. We have found that our students have become more sensitive to ALL Living things after caring for their pet TickleMe Plants in the classroom and garden. Just search TickleMe Plant to find a classroom or individual kit or visit http://www.ticklemeplant.com to see a video of the live plant in action. This will change the way your kids look at plants forever.

Great video, terrific conversations. We are doing something similar in Australia called the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program for 8-12 year olds.

to add to this most inspiring and beneficial program;

Every school needs a nature trail and every person-adult or young-
needs a bit of wilderness if wonder, reverence and awe are to be cultivated.- William O. Douglas, former Justice of the Supreme Court

Stooped in prayer like reverence, head bowed with gracious and intent peace,

hands clasping new life unto soils cradle, this cultivating soul ponders the reaches of nature,

delves into her ingenuity, marvels at the wonderment of life’s tenacious dedication,

their quiet rapport professed in serene mannerism and temperament,

grant testimony of a profound attachment, weaving the fibers of creation and tradition

upon our terrestrial loom, the gardeners spirit constitutes the essence of our destiny...

Nature is our teacher

Edible Schoolyard is a perfect model of alternative classroom in school or community garden as well. School garden program has just started in Japan recently, We must learn from ESY a lot. because Nature, always our teacher.

As a public health person, I agree wholeheartedly. The real battle is making this type of learning available in most classrooms across the US, especially to food-insecure children.

In a culture that is experiencing an epidemic of childhood obesity and diabetes type 2 I believe that the teachers that helped create this project are the true heroes. Not only have they found a way to get young people engaged in the outdoors they have introduced the idea that organic foods can be fun to make and taste good. I believe that teaching young kids to eat healthy will decrease their chances of other deadly diseases such as heart disease and cancer and this is what this project is doing.
