VISIT Edible Schoolyard New Orleans

Emeril Lagasse Foundation helped to establish the Edible Schoolyard NOLA which has expanded to five charter schools in the FirstLine Schools network. The program incorporates organic gardening into daily curriculum at the Outdoor Classroom and Edible Kitchen and Cafeteria, where kids eat healthy lunches on reusable lunch trays. At Arthur Ashe Charter School, the foundation is underwriting construction of a greenhouse, which will provide plant starts and seedlings as part of the city’s largest school garden.
