Edible Schoolyard

The Edible Schoolyard at John Newbery Elementary in Wenatchee had its ground-breaking on Earth Day in 2006. Thanks to sponsorship by the Newbery PTA and Heifer International, EAT and other community partners were able to remove the old soil and bring in clean soil to raise the garden at least two feet in a functional two-tiered terrace.

As a grassroots collaboration we will

  • educate our community about healthful, local foods;
  • combine the efforts of our various stakeholders by making connections and sharing resources;
  • create an accessible, local infrastructure that will support our family farmers, encourage local markets, promote environmental responsibility, and assure adequate and safe food for our community, ourselves, and our children.

How we will meet these goals

  • increasing consumer awareness about local food systems;
  • working on initiatives and projects that keep local farming viable;
  • improving food security through local food system resources;
  • creating and maintaining a group to move these goals forward.
