My eldest son goes to Berkeley’s King Middle School. A full acre of the school grounds has been developed into a teaching garden, complete with fruit trees, berry bushes, annual vegetables, a wood-burning pizza oven, shady seating areas, and a coop filled with chickens. On Saturday we attended the annual Plant Sale Fundraiser, and enjoyed the warm May sunshine.
It is not hard to integrate edibles into a garden in the Bay Area. Everyone should have a lemon tree and a rosemary bush, at least!
