School Garden

In 2015, Foster created an extracurricular school garden project at the arts high school where he teaches. The project focuses on providing students with opportunities to learn about raising vegetables on a small scale without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, but it has also involved students in activities related to gardening, sustainability, and healthy eating. Since the August 2018 fire that caused the school to relocate, the project, which is now called A Moveable Feast, is being rebuilt as a school garden and outdoor classroom on the site of what had once been an elementary-school playground.
