PS 68X Garden of Unity

The mission of the PS68X Garden of Unity is:

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. Gardening class focuses strongly on food production; teaching students the skills to grow, care for, and harvest their own food.

Climate Smart Garden and Nutritional Initiative

Community World Service Asia will be able to attend to urgent needs related to water, food security and livelihood sources that are negatively impacting on the nutrition status of the vulnerable communities in Badin district of Sindh province, Pakistan. The objective is to conduct adoptable interventions that will introduce simple and sustainable climate smart technologies as food security interventions that will contribute to improving nutritional status and also ensure resilience of community members who will be able to recover from the immediate shocks resulting from drought.

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. 

Employment Training & Preparation Program: Mix't Greens

Mix’t Greens is a applied learning lab in Food and Customer Service and EARTH Gardening: Introduction to Growing Food Community College Employment Training Program (ETP).

Students who participate in ETP programing are adult learners, all with barriers to education and employment, some live with disabilities, mental health or addictions issues in their lives – all learners want to participate in hands on applied learning to develop their employment skills.

Infinite Insight Inc.

By examining and identifying sectors as well as factors that contribute to root causes of persistent poverty, Infinite Insight Inc (I3) invests in the residents of USDA StrikeForce for Rural Growth and Opportunity and USHUD Promise Zone counties.

Abu Dhabi New School Lunch Program

I am a teacher and chef who has been hired to help implement a school lunch menu for a brand new school in Abu Dhabi, UAE. This school is being designed from the ground up to incorporate a cafeteria kitchen in each separate building along with kitchen classrooms.

Urban Adamah

Urban Adamah provides garden and farm based experiential learning opportunities for young people all across the Bay Area. Urban Adamah is a Jewish farm that is inspired by Jewish tradition and practice. The youth department of Urban Adamah uses fun and dynamic hands-on activities for kids to get a taste of organic farming. Urban Adamah connects kids' relationship to food and earth while cultivating a culture and sense of mindfulness and appreciation. At camp, we do this through planting, harvesting, preparing farm to table meals, and building mud forts.

Cyclops Farms: Farm Education

Cyclops Farms has a mission of "Keeping an Eye on Our Food Systems."

Cyclops Farms Farm Education serves a community of socio-economic and culturally diverse individuals. Our education begins from the true organic roots “digging in the dirt” and knowing where your food source is generated through a closed-loop system. This includes trials and successes from tilling to seeding, nurturing to harvest, purchasing to meal planning, and composting for sustainability.
