Cooking in the Children's House

Cooking in the Children's House aims to show how we have incorporated the Edible Schoolyard into our Montessori primary classrooms throughout the year. We learned directly with the children at our school and along the way created a gardening and cooking program for young children that felt right for us. Teachers, children and parents contributed many ideas and countless hours of planting, weed pulling, picking and chopping to realize this dream.
We thank them one and all!
Our inspiration springs from our dedication to the children who traverse the garden paths, but also from our commitment to the educational methods of Maria Montessori and the guiding light of Alice Waters, founder of the Edible Schoolyard project.

"There must be provision for the child to have contact with nature; to understand and appreciate the order, the harmony and the beauty in nature.Maria Montessori
