Following the incredible success of Chez Panisse, chef, author, and activist Alice Waters founded the Edible Schoolyard Project (ESY) in 1995 — combining her perspectives as a trained Montessori teacher, fervent political activist, gifted chef, and champion of sustainable agriculture.
New Canaan Library is pleased to offer a unique event, featuring changemakers behind the mission/work to “edibly educate” the next generation of regenerative growers of local, organic food. The event takes place on Tuesday, May 23 at 6:30 PM in the Jim & Dede Bartlett Auditorium and Community Room.
Culinary Director of the Alice Waters Institute, Jennifer Sherman, in conversation with Chef Tamar Adler and the Edible Schoolyard’s Executive Director, Ashley Rouse, will share the tools to change the way we grow, cook and eat.
