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

In 2017, Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District (TBAISD) piloted the TBAISD Farm to School program to provide school specific Farm to School support and capacity-building to select elementary schools within Northwest Michigan.

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.

Benicia School Edible Gardens

I have been a volunteer at Mary Farmar Elementary School Garden as their coordinator and Liberty High School Greenhouse for six years.  Both schools have the same mission:  to encourage young people to learn how to live sustainably by caring for diverse and productive gardens. Students eat what they grow in the garden and develop a posititive relationship with healthy food and the natural environment.  All of the activities in the gardens involve hands on participation.

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.
