Garden Visit: Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School Edible Schoolyard


Over the weekend I was able to visit good friends in Berkeley and they took me on a tour of Alice Waters’ Edible Schoolyard garden at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School (click here to see their website). I was surprised by how big the garden was (a full acre!) and walked through (jealously) thinking that I wished I had that much space to garden! I will let the pictures do the talking for me and I hope to visit again in the spring or summer. DSC_0621 DSC_0622 DSC_0623 DSC_0624 DSC_0625 DSC_0626 DSC_0627 DSC_0628 DSC_0629 DSC_0630 DSC_0631 DSC_0632 DSC_0633 DSC_0634 DSC_0635 DSC_0636 DSC_0637 DSC_0639 DSC_0640 DSC_0641 DSC_0642 DSC_0643 DSC_0644 DSC_0645 DSC_0646 DSC_0647 DSC_0648

  1. Can’t wait for spring when that garden will be in full bloom!!!

  2. Can’t wait for the garden to be in full bloom!!!

  3. Beautiful pictures! My first reaction, too, was to be totally jealous. I want an acre to garden, and an earth oven, and a chicken tractor! I am in Berkeley a lot these days as I finish grad school. I’ll have to check out this garden; I didn’t even know it existed.

    • You must visit Sarah! It is really a beautiful space and the pictures can’t quite capture all the work that goes into maintaining a space like that. Also another favorite place you should check out is a nursery on Solano called Flowerland (technically in Albany not Berkeley)… I love getting a coffee from the airstream cafe and sitting amongst all the plants (that I don’t have space for)!

  4. P.S. Ooh! And I also want a glass greenhouse. Like, really really want one!

  5. Thanks for sharing! I haven’t had the opportunity to check this garden out yet, but have wanted to. Having a cob oven is on my to-do list 🙂
