Edible Schoolyard and the State of the World

January 20, 2010

I don’t feel qualified to talk about many things that are happening in the world right now–the fact that Massachusetts blew it, and maybe passing health care legislation.  It’s unbelievable to me that so many of Obama’s appointments haven’t been and aren’t even close to being approved.  The difficulty of the Brazilian visa system.  The fact that I’m watching Eagle Eye Cherry croon on Big Brother Brazil in the background. Or that the Corinthians is only on pay-per-view in their home city because the other Sao Paulo team is also playing right now.

I do feel good about Alice Waters’s new Edible Schoolyard school in Brooklyn, discussed in today’s New York Times.  I love that students tend to the vegetables and there’s a kitchen classroom where they can cook their own lunches.  It’s only going to effect a small number of kids, but it’s such a dreamy, well-intentioned idea.
