Fresh Growth Gardens

The name of our program is Fresh Growth Gardens. We've started by working with three schools in the Bay Area (San Francisco, Oakland, and Vallejo). We started on a vision to stoke children's curiosity for the outdoor world with a focus on at risk communities. Through our efforts we hope to inspire young people to live impactful and healthy lives while positively contributing to our planet and communities. The opportunity we identified is that many of the funds for the state of California that were directed towards outdoor education starting in the late nineties have evaporated.

Local food cycling school

We are a non-profit organization to promote the enjoyment of a lifestyle that aims to establish resource recycling in the local community. Our activities include, among others teaching how to recycle our kitchen garbage and other waste generated from our yards that is, how to turn them into compost and communicating the joy of composting. By making use of compost we produced or collected in neiboring areas, we grow vegetables in community gardens. 

We focus on following 5 issues for a sustainable lifestyle in community you live.

Springhill Garden

Our program is really in the beginning stages at I am looking to expand and build the program by implementing structure and systems that will create a sustainable means for the garden to continue through the changing personnel that a public school can bring. I am a former sous chef and line cook at Chez Panisse, I left 5 years ago to be at home with my two daughters. My eldest is now in kindergarten at the local school and the garden program is in desperate need of help, I want to be that help.

Colegio Hebreo Tarbut

The Hebrew Tarbut School is a private school within the branch of Jewish schools in Mexico, seeking to transmit the best possible education to their students from kindergarten through high school during the last 75 years. Being a private school in Mexico, it receives students who belong to a minority of the population but with many privileges, this implies a lot of responsibility to prepare them for the future.
