I did an intro post on the Slow Food international movement on this blog a few weeks ago, and the St. Louis Convivium that is part of it, so I won’t repeat that information now. I will link “Edible Schoolyard” below to a post on “The Healthy Planet” blog, where you can get some additional information about the concept of the Edible Schoolyard. That’s your lagniappe from me for this post!

If you missed that post, check it out, especially if food is your medium of creativity, or if you’re just interested in (or, dare I say passionate about?) the pleasure of healthful foods and the good company that should be part of growing, cooking and eating them.

Here’s the info on the new date for the Slow Food St. Louis “Edible Schoolyard” event that was rained out last week.

“We are rescheduling the Edible Schoolyard tour for Saturday, April 25th, and adding a work day component to the plan. Please join us anytime between 10 am and 3 pm. We welcome you to come for just a few hours (or during the whole time) to assist in our digging, planting and building “teepee village” as well as a number of other garden related projects. We will give a formal tour at 12 noon but will certainly show those around who are not able to be there at noon.

The workday and tour will be at Shining Rivers Waldorf School, located at 915 N. Elm Avenue, Webster Groves, MO 63119. If you are looking for a traditional school buidling you won’t find it, the school consists of 2 homes and 3 additional lots. Our campus borders both Elm and Bell streets. Prior to 12 noon, please park on the street (Elm or Bell) or at Ivery Crockett Park across the street on Bell and after 12 noon feel free to park in the school parking lot at the Bell entrance.

Any questions, please call Kelly Childs @ 720/318-6785. We look forward to seeing you there!”
