The Trust for Public Land Green Schoolyards Program (Bay Area)

The Trust for Public Land is a national nonprofit organization that conserves land and creates parks for people. The Trust for Public Land's Bay Area Team is starting a Green Schoolyards Program in partnership with Oakland Unified School District and several community-based organizations that focus on the multiple benefits that green schoolyards bring to education and the environment. We aim to convert asphalt schoolyards to green schoolyards with nature-based outdoor education and play areas, vegetable gardening spaces, shade trees, native plant landscaping, and stormwater infrastructure.

Firle community allotment

Learning about food is a life changing adventure! Children often eat only the
foods that they know. When they see, experience, and prepare new foods
they often enjoy the taste. Eat Your Veggies offers a fun environment for
children to experiment with new and sometimes unusual ingredients. The
children cook real food using fresh seasonal organic ingredients with much
of the produce obtained from the school garden or local farms. Small groups
are utilized to encourage touching and tasting of vegetables and to practice

Firle community allotment

We are a community project set up to revitalise the village allotments and engage the community in growing vegetables, herbs, fruit, edible flowers and planting an orchard.

We will be working with the village primary school and their cookery teacher to grow food the children can cook in school for their lunch.
