Lopez Island Farm Education Program

The mission of the L.I.F.E. (Lopez Island Farm Education) Program at the Lopez School is to create sustainable local community-based organic farming & gardening experiences that are wholly integrated into the Lopez Island School District K-12 curriculum & cafeteria to promote individual, community and environmental health.

The L.I.F.E. Program helps students build an appreciation for nature, nutrition, community, land stewardship, and the environment.

Upland Unified School District Nutrition Services

The Upland Unified (UUSD) Nutrition Services Program works to create a healthier environment for UUSD students and all children in the city of Upland. A district- wide belief in a whole child approach fuels initiatives taken by both the Upland Unified School District and Nutrition Services Program. Goals of the Nutrition Services department include developing meals with higher nutritional value, ensuring food security for all students, and increasing nutritional education on campus.

Joseph Sears School

The Joseph Sears School Outdoor Classroom provides students with an outdoor space for hands-on exploration, inquiry, discovery and garden-based learning in all grades K-8 in areas of practical arts, core subjects, social emotional, and health. Surrounded by native plants, butterfly and rain gardens, vegetable and herb beds, fruit bushes and trees, students develop an understanding and curiosity about the natural world. In addition during practical arts classes, students develop an understanding of where our food comes from with the farm-to-table concept - plant, harvest, eat (and enjoy!).

Green VI

Green VI is a local not-for-profit organisation with a vision of a green, clean, healthy, and prosperous BVI, where the well-being of the people is of primary importance and a balance is maintained between conservation of the natural environment and development. Our mission is to demonstrate, facilitate and catalyse environmentally friendly systems through practical projects, education and innovation, with focus on waste, energy and water.

Gardening @ CJR!

The Gardening @ CJR program is run by teachers and students for the last two years. We grow herbs and fast growig veggies that students can harvest before the end of the school year. Students harvest herbs and give them away at a weekly produce program called Hungry Harvest. 

Our mission is to educate students about the role of gardening, healthy eating, and eco stewardship. As a title 1 school, our students need well rounded exposures to nutrition, gardening and eco sustainability. 

TBAISD Farm to School

MUSE School

"Inspiring and Preparing Young People to Live Consciously with Themselves, One Another, and the Planet."

Learning is Alive: We pursue education fearlessly, knowing that children are naturally “switched-on” when they are learning about something they love. We strive to cultivate and sustain that in-the-moment exuberance.

San Mateo Park Elementary School

Our garden is an educational, edible, student-driven garden. Park is a Title I school; with 70% of our families considered socioeconomically disadvantaged. Our mission is to introduce new organic food to our students; many live in food deserts within San Mateo. Our garden motto is “we love dirt and dirt is good”. Many  students here have never seen strawberries grow on the vine nor picked tomatoes, squash, or tomatillos.
