Through an on-going partnership with the Master of Arts in Education Program at Antioch University Seattle, and their professional endorsement program in Environmental and Sustainability Education, EduCulture is launching a groundbreaking Leadership in Edible Education Certificate Program, designed for formal and informal educators, and other professionals, who are interested in making a difference through edible education, in schools and the wider community. This leadership program is spread over four quarterly courses aimed at building the professional repertoire of those who seek to work in the field of edible education.

Education Towards Food, Citizenship & Community, the first course in our Leadership in Edible Education Certificate Program, explores and examines the anatomy and interrelationships of our regional food community. Over four days in July, you will enrich, enhance and enliven your understanding of our Northwest foodshed and learn how to be a more engaged food citizen. Using the Central Puget Sound food community as curriculum, each class will take place in the field, situated amongst regional production, processing, distribution, consumption and recycling.
We will examine alternatives to the prevailing system of industrial agriculture from farm to market to table and beyond where emphasis is on the principles of clean, fair, fresh, nutritious, local, accessible, and traditional food. During lunch and snack with each class session, students will taste their way through our regional food cuisine.
