Food Justice & Edible Schoolyards by Patricia Sprague AT MASON RIDGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in the 60s, my classmates and I sang “O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain, for purple mountain majesties, above the fruited plain!” We sang with the solid fervor of youth, and I felt so lucky to live in our unquestionably magnificent country.

But riffing on Prince’s tale locates Purple Rain’s...
