Edible Schoolyard Academy

ESY 2014 Summer AcademyGreetings Edible Educators!

Many wonderful and exciting things are happening at Edible Schoolyard Orlando (ESY) as we look forward to hosting our third annual ESY Summer Teacher Academy!

WE are eager for Teachers, Administrators and Community Leaders to spend time in the gardens and enter the kitchen classroom ready to prepare their harvest and bring back lessons for their students.

Join us for two days of training, June 11 & 12, via a behind-the-scenes edible education experience where you will learn first hand the core principals and practical tools for bringing academic subjects to life in the garden, kitchen, and lunchroom.  Also, take away creative ideas on how to sustain edible education programs at your school.

Linked is the Academy flyer, schedule and application.  The cost is $300 and application and tuition are due prior to attendance.  Space is limited but may be reserved with a $50 deposit by June 1.

Can’t attend?  Then please consider sponsoring someone else, on your behalf.  Also, contact us if you’re interested but unsure of funding, as limited scholarships have been available in the past.

Mail application and make check payable to:
Orlando Junior Academy

Here’s to meaningful summertime experiences,

Janice Banks, Edible Schoolyard Director
