Edible Education

Edible Education empowers students to understand how food is grown, consumed, and impacts our personal, community, and environmental health. Edible Education is based on the idea that the health of our community and future generations can be improved through hands-on experiences growing and cooking fruits and vegetables. Over the course of three years, our program works in partnership with local schools to establish gardens and train teachers how to incorporate gardening and cooking activities into their classrooms. La Semilla supports schools and teachers with the supplies, training and technical assistance to ensure they are successful.We currently offer Edible Education at 21 partner schools throughout the Las Cruces, Gadsden, and El Paso school districts.

La Semilla’s Edible Education Program is made possible by The Paso del Norte Health Foundation.
