Dear Friends of the BUSD School Gardens,

We had a wonderful Second Annual Gala last Friday night 
<https://www.flickr.com/photos/53901376@N04/17339275681/in/photostream/>. Thank 
you so much for joining us! We can't do this work without you. Your 
support allows us to continue to teach our kids in our 17 school gardens 
about where their food comes from.

If you missed the party, you can check out the fun on the District's 
Flickr site

you can see the Berkeley High School Jazz Band 
and the student film project, the Whole Foods farm-to-table fare

folks enjoying craft beers from CaliCraft 
and wines from Mendocino Wine Growers 

We asked you to tell us what inspires you about food systems and 
and you told us that you were inspired by:

“Building healthy habits early in life”

“Kids wanting to learn and being excited”

“It’s the best way to learn science”

“Giving kids the opportunity to create”

Our Journey is ongoing and I’ll be talking with the School Board about 
our Program this Wednesday (5/6/15) evening at 7:30. The meeting agenda 
is here 
I hope that you can join me again as we engage our community in the 
value of teaching our kids about where their food comes from and 
continuing to put Berkeley on the map for innovation in food systems and 

In the words of one of our second graders in the school garden,

Peas and carrots,
