The goal of the Edible Schoolyard is not only to teach kids about sustainable food production, but also to serve as a hands-on, living ecosystem that can be used to incorporate math, art, history and science lessons. School administrators hope that eventually the facility will serve as a center for agriculture and the environment, a topic often addressed by many of today’s most prominent foodies.

Organizers still have some fundraising to do in order to secure enough money to build Brooklyn’s new Edible Schoolyard, but if all goes according to plan, designers will break ground on the project this summer.
