Alice Waters' Edible Schoolyard


Few people inspire me as much as Alice Waters. Here she walks around the "edible schoolyard," a place where children learn about food: how it's grown, what it looks like, smells like, tastes like - and how much work it is to bring real food to the table.

She is a great evangelist for her movement - she wants children to know that real food, wonderful food, is neither fast, cheap nor easy. It requires hard work, love and respect. Tomorrow, an interview.

Oh, and there's a brief American Express Card commercial that precedes the video; don't let it scare you away.
