A Message from Jacquie Berger, Executive Director of Just Food.

Greetings Just Food Stories listeners! Summer is the busy season for Just Food and our partners: farmers are farming, gardeners are gardening, market managers and market managing - you get the idea. So we have to say good-bye for the summer, but we will miss you! When you find yourself missing us too, we hope you will enjoy listening to archived episodes on heritageradionetwork.org, or come and find us in person! We would love to help you find a food project in your community, or start your own Just Food Story. To support our work or find out more about how Just Food can support you, visit our website at justfood.org.

Many thanks again - hope to see you soon!

Composting and recycling at school isn't just about eco-friendly waste diversion. It also provides students with a powerful lesson in sound environmental practice that they'll carry with them for the rest of their lives. The message is simple: what comes from the earth can be returned to enrich it, so it can provide for us again and again. How to get started? Today's guests, from San Francisco, CA and Northampton, MA, will tell you how: Start small. Champion your early adopters. Develop educational and marketing tools to enlist the support of the entire school community. Or use materials from other districts--there's lots out there already! Thanks to today's sponsor, Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"A big part of San Francisco's 'Zero Waste' initiative hopes to be achieved through education... we have a 63% landfill diversion rate in San Francisco schools." [6:00]

"We prefer starting with the kids and hope the adults catch on... We understand the power that kids have." [14:20]

-- Tamar Hurwitz on Inside School Food

"We did underestimate how difficult it would be to get all of the students to sort their food waste properly; it was difficult to get everyone on board." [27:30]

-- Anna Moore on Inside School Food
