      Show Love is honored to have been chosen to bring you the incredible story of Edible Schoolyard New York – a garden-centered hands-on learning program springing up in New York’s neediest neighborhoods with the goal of spreading to schools all over the city. As the first showcase school in Gravesend, Brooklyn (P.S. 216) heads towards it’s third magical year and construction of the East Harlem school (P.S. 7), is set to begin, kids, parents, and teachers share their experiences and their excitement. Why this is so important: The impact of the edible schoolyard in New York City goes beyond its surface assets of celebrating children by giving them beautiful gardens, homemade vegetables, and fresh air as tools for healthier living. It teaches kids about their own personal power and their place in the world. It shows kids, in demonstrable terms, that the change they can affect in their lives and the lives of those around them starts with a tiny seed that with perseverance can grow into an abundant garden of opportunity, health, and happiness.

      • Challenge by Choice: The hard lessons of chicken harvest

        Each year at North Country School and at Camp Treetops, school-age children take part in chicken harvest, a twice-yearly ritual reaching back to the institution's founding. Led by NCS teacher and farm manager Mike Tholen, chicken harvest is a time-tested and intentional educational experience. It is a challenge by choice - an often profound experience intended to help connect children with the food they eat: where it comes from, and the hard physical and emotional work required to produce it. Simultaneously, children learn the values of simple and sustainable living and the need to protect the planet. North Country School and Camp Treetops are two sister programs that share a common philosophy and a 200-acre campus outside Lake Placid, New York. Founded in 1938, North Country School sits among mountain peaks in the six million-acre Adirondack Park, just outside Lake Placid, NY. Our 200-acre campus features a working farm, extensive gardens, and alpine wilderness that provide hands-on opportunities for learning and growth. Here boys and girls in grades 4-9 benefit from a literal and metaphorical breath of fresh mountain air; our children thrive in a humanely paced program that features equal parts academics, arts, work, and play. The guidance of talented, committed adults and a strong, diverse community instill in students values of simple living and environmental responsibility. With a unique mix of inspiring people, place, and programs, North Country School helps students to flourish. Founded in 1920, Camp Treetops offers a summer unplugged, during which boys and girls (ages 8-14) explore the natural world, are embraced by community, and grow in independence, creativity, and physical skills. Our rustic Adirondack setting and unhurried pace provide children with the space and time for childhood. Our 200-acre property has a working farm with barnyard animals, large organic gardens, a lake free of motorboats, and miles of trails from which to explore the surrounding mountains and woodlands. Treetops offers a life of simplicity—free from the pull of computers, television, and other electronics—where during a summer unplugged, children come to appreciate their own imaginations, the company of others, and wonders of the natural world.

                  The Edible Schoolyard is a collaborative project between the students from Eckerd College and Lakewood Elementary school. Eckerd students built an organic garden at the school and are using it as a part of the curriculum to teach kids about the environment, self sufficiency, where food comes from, and responsibility. Like the garden the film project is organic. It is growing and changing just as the plants are growing and the students are learning from the experience. The official film will be completed in April after our Harvest Festival.
