Upper Elementary

Hamlin Street Elementary Garden Club

We are a suburban, public school of approximately 400 students.  We are located in West Hills, California.  Our garden consists of 8 raised beds with a pergola and some grape vines.  We are currently growing organic vegetables and have a few fruit trees.  Our hope is to expand our garden to include espallied fruit trees.  It's good to dream!


Plant the Seed

Plant the Seed is a not-for-profit program that creates outdoor classrooms in community and school gardens to educate and empower under-resourced young people—building cultural connections, advancing economic justice and improving their overall health and well-being.

Growing Up Organic

Growing Up Organic is a project of Canadian Organic Growers' Ottawa Chapter. We run a number of active programs aimed at increasing youth awareness of and access to local organic foods, while encouraging increased organic production for the local community.

Leaves for Learning

Leaves for Learning is a program fueled by our students wanting academics taken outside the walls of a classroom.  They used an abandoned frog pond, already on our campus,  as the spring board for what it has turned into today.  Today we have several vegetable raised beds, flowers beds, herb gardens, rain barrels, composting drums, a watershed to study, a cedar glade (indigenous to our area), Van Gogh Garden (sunflowers), and much more.  We are so eager to learn as much curriculum outside as possible.  It is a great sanctuary to read, study wildlife, and plant life.  We are truly blessed to

Dailard Elementary Edible Science Garden

 We are in the process of constructing out Edible Science Garden. We have funding in place and are moving forward! So very excited to get these kids growing their own food and relating the garden to their daily educational activities. 

Healthy Communities Coalition

Since 2010, Healthy Communities Coalition has strategically worked towards improving our area’s food system. We began developing a food hub by connecting local, state, and federal agencies, tribal groups, farmers, businesses, and community volunteers around the goal of creating an affordable, accessible and fair food system that bolsters our local agriculture economy, provides for residents in need, builds demand for locally grown foods, and creates a sustainable source of healthy food.
