We were thrilled beyond belief to host none other than Alice Waters in the garden at Buford this week. She is the godmother of school gardening, founding the renowned Edible Schoolyard in Berkeley, CA sixteen years ago. A passionate advocate for fresh, organic food for all, Alice’s work as a chef and teacher has been an inspiration to our program. We are grateful that we were afforded the opportunity to show her our work at Buford. With huge thanks to all our supporters and friends who have helped to build our program — we would have no garden program in Charlottesville if it weren’t for the incredible community investment in this effort! Below are some pictures of our visit with Alice, taken by wonderful C’ville photographer Sarah Cramer Shields (and you can find more photos on our CSG Facebook page).
