Healthy Schools

Currently funded by an AmeriCorps planning grant, the Santa Fe Botanical Garden and Cooking with Kids have partnered to develop a new program that will bring AmeriCorps members into local schools to teach a combined garden and kitchen curriculum. While the Santa Fe Botanical Garden, among its other environmental education endeavors, works to support school gardens and teachers, Cooking with Kids works in schools to teach hands-on food and nutrition education programs.

Larchmont Charter School

In 2009, Larchmont Charter was selected by Alice Waters to spread the roots of the Edible School Yard Project in Los Angeles. The ESY Project at LCS supports constructivist learning through hands-on experiences in gardening and cooking classes, and nourishing foods shared around a common table. This edible education fosters appreciation of how the natural world sustains us and inspires students to be advocates for the well being of our school community, the environment, and all living beings.

MariLark Farms CSBanks

I am launching a seed movement with the spring 2018 unveiling of my Community Seed Bank (CSB) initiative in the Berkeley Hills! My aim is to build community one seed at a time, to educate the community about seed saving, biodiversity, soil health and much more. I am a member of SeedSavers Exchange @ seedsavers.org and have worked with them over the past few years to build a network and to hoist our annual tomato tasting. This has grown each year with this year being our sixth annual event.
