“Everything in its place” (ESY Part 3)

This principle is at work everywhere at the Edible Schoolyard, and I’m certain it contributes to a well-organized, efficient, safe environment in the garden and the kitchen.

First the garden—color-labeled tools on a mobile cart.

ESY staff repeatedly say that the kitchen is a “stone age” kitchen.  There are very few electric appliances and lots of hand-powered presses, grinders, etc.

Cubbies for backpacks and jackets in the kitchen keep everything tidy near the workspaces.

Each table had a “toolbox” of all of the kitchen items students need to cook.  Favorite new tool?  The wavy knife!

I left inspired to think through the “systems” in our own garden and brainstorm how to better organize them!
