The school garden at Eastlawn Elementary began in the summer of 2017. Two teachers at the school applied for and received a $20,000 grant from Healthy Alamance, a local non-profit organization, to support the creation of the garden.

Monmouth County Master Gardener/Montessori Elementary programs

As an advocate for just and sustainable food systems and for school-garden curriculum, I am committed to furthering edible education programs in my area (central coastal NJ).  I would like to see existing programs strengthened, as well as new grassroots and community activities started.  As a resident of the densely populated Long Branch area of Monmouth County NJ,  I have found that while there are many small programs that have been started, there is still much work to be done in this area.

Woodside Elementary School Garden

The Woodside School Garden mission is to teach plant, earth and physical science concepts in an outdoor hands-on setting, to teach students basic gardening skills and responsibility for plant care, and to promote healthy eating habits and nutritional education. We serve the Woodside School students from preschool to 8th grade with our primary focus on the grades between TK and 5th grade. Our students come from the Town of Woodside as well as approximately 10 percent of our school is from an underperforming school district in our county.

The School of Arts and Sciences

The School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) Garden Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about the natural world, food systems, and health through gardening and cooking classes. All 350 K-5th grade students are required to attend a 35 minute weekly gardening class in the school's 1/3 acre garden, as a part of their Special Areas class schedule.

Lettuce Turnip the Beet

Paso Verde is Natomas Unified's newest TK-5 school that opened its doors in August 2017 for its founding year.  Paso Verde’s garden "Lettuce Turnip the Beet" was funded largely by a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant, but it has gotten a big boost from community friends, too — Fiery Ginger Farms,  Sacramento County Farm Bureau, local Cub Scout troops, and our PTA all contributed to ensure we had a successful foundation for our learning. We broke ground on our garden in October and our minds and crops have been growing steadily ever since.
