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.

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.
