Sen. Anitere Flores received a student tour the Royal Palm Elementary Academy of Discovery food forest. Even our pros - project managers Eddie Recinos and Deborah La Belle - had to step aside as the fifth graders pointed out plants and their benefits. Students even convinced Sen. Flores to taste leaves and fruit straight from the garden. Food Forests for Schools is generously supported by HealthFoundation South Florida. Our work has been boosted by legislators like Sen. Flores who work to secure additional funding from the state. #foodforestforschools #goodgrades #goodhealth #royalpalmelementaryschool #healthfoundationofsouthflorida #senatorflores #supportpubliceducation #supporteducation #publicschools #education #community #miamidadecounty #miamischools #mdcps #foodforests #ediblegardens #learninglabs #buildingstrongmindsandbodies #teachers #305 #students #publicschools #miamidadecounty

The Education Fund teamed up with the University of Florida Farm to School program to celebrate Florida Crunch at W. J. Bryan Elementary School in North Miami. Florida Crunch from Fresh for Florida Kids, honors the farm-to-table movement and encourages students to eat fresh produce. The Education Fund's Debi LaBelle, a classically trained chef, prepared a salad with greens from the school's food forest. Students loved it! #goodnutrition #eatright #permaculture #foodforest #theeducationfund #educationfundmiami #educationfund #schoolgarden #miamischools #mdcps #schoolgardens #305 #foodforestforschools #educators #administrators #foodandnutrition #farmtotable #uf #ifacs

Happy to see Zarron Brown, a.k.a. The Worm Whisperer, get some recognition. He's featured in the lasted issue of @EdibleSoFla. Zarron has been working in our food forest for years. The kids love him and the food forests aren't the same without him. ⠀ ⠀ #goodnutrition #eatright #permaculture #foodforest #theeducationfund #educationfundmiami #educationfund #schoolgarden #miamischools #mdcps #schoolgardens #305 #foodforestforschools ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #educators #administrators #foodandnutrition

We hosted our first food forest workshop this weekend at Royal Palm Elementary School. Lead teachers from our Food Forest for Schools program spent Saturday learning about exotic fruits, honing their gardening techniques and discovering new class projects that engage students. Thanks to our team, the school and all the teachers who sacrificed part of their Saturday to spend it discovering the endless wonders of a food forest. #permaculture #foodforest #theeducationfund #educationfundmiami #educationfund #schoolgarden #miamischools #mdcps #schoolgardens #305 #foodforestforschools #educators #teachers #foodandnutrition #goodhealth #elementaryschools

@wimsloskie needed some #sauropusandrogynus #katook #katuk trimmed, cut and removed to #makeroom in the #schoolgarden at #kelseypharrelementary , part of @educationfundmiami #amazing #food #forest for #schools #foodforestforschools program that exposes #kids and #youth to #gardening , and allowing them to #witness firsthand how their #food is grown, then #eat it #iloveit cause it's #reconnecting them with their food and #nature So @drigotheculinaryalchemist contacted me and asked if I wanted to help, which of course I did. The excess katook, well it's going to be added to our #compost systems and converted back to #soil to become food for the plants, #treez , various #landscapes and more gardens. Nature, which we are a part of, demonstrates how it should be done. #enjoy your #workweek , but #ifyoucan , visit a garden and #escape from the #ratrace while you trace your steps back to a place that feeds you in many ways #thewormwhisperer

Thanks to @JWUNorthMiami culinary students for helping clean up the food forest at North Miami Elementary. The students teamed up with The Education Fund Food Forest for Schools staff, teacher Edeline Severe and Principal Debra Dubin to give the garden an overhaul. Students propped up trees toppled over during Hurricane Irma, trimmed bushes and added mulch in the pathways so students can walk through the food forest with ease. #foodforestforschools #northmiamielementary #theeducationfund #johnson &wales #culinary #students #hurricaneirma #cleanup #miamischools #mdcps #northmiami #publicschools #education #schools #miamidadecounty #fourthlargestschooldistrict
