Leadership in Edible Education Certificate Program

Our Cohort of Edible Educators

About the Program:
EduCulture in partnership with the Master of Arts in Education Program at Antioch University Seattle (AUS) present the Leadership in Edible Education Certificate Program (L.E.E.). Launched in 2015, this groundbreaking leadership development program is designed for formal and informal educators, and other professionals, who are interested in making a difference through edible education in Pre-K, K-12, and post-secondary schools and the wider food community. Spread over four quarterly courses, with Summer and Fall points of entry, this intensive professional education program is aimed at building the cultivating the experience, knowledge, and repertoire for those who seek to work in the field of edible education, or incorporate edible education into their current practice. It is also a formal concentration within the AUS MAEd Degree program, making the first of its kind in a graduate education program.

L.E.E. participants represent a diverse group of people working in schools and across our regional food community, along with an array of students from the AUS MAEd Degree Program.

“I knew that I wanted to be a part of this food revolution, inspiring people to reclaim their birthright to eat healthy whole foods and understand how it was created. EduCulture guides us to create tangible food education programs adapting our ideas to the existing food network across the world. We observe pioneering education and we participate in practical field experiences. I love this program.”
