Edible Schoolyard NOLA

ABOUT THE AGENCY
The Edible Schoolyard NOLA's (ESYNOLA) mission is to improve the long-term well being of our students, families, and school community. We do this through comprehensive food education that integrates hands-on organic gardening and seasonal cooking into the school curriculum, culture, and cafeteria programs.

WHAT YOU DO
Service learners serving at ESYNOLA can assist in garden classes, cooking classes, kitchen organizing, or gardening.

WHAT YOU LEARN
Students will learn how to engage positively with children in grades K-8th. They will also be able to work alongside trained chef and garden teachers to learn basic skills of cooking and/or gardening. Students will learn the philosophy behind food education and be a part of our mission to change the way children eat, learn, and live.
